Leave it on the Mat: Yoga for Queer Resilience:
- Jan 26th 7-730pm Central (Virtual)
This event is intended to build bodyfulness and well as mindfulness for our marginalized pride community via a brief restorative movement and meditation. The practice involves dimmed lighting, soft music, self-reflection and ease. By tapping into a gentle practice, the practitioner can activate their parasympathetic nervous system for stress and harm reduction, turn inward for improved self-awareness and learning, and slow down in the evening for improved sleep.
Studies show that yoga can assist with many of the afflictions that impact our queer community: mental health improvements, eating disorder recovery, addiction, anxiety, dysphoria, and dysmorphia, among others (however, yoga is not meant to replace your current care; this write up is also not meant as specific medical advice. Please seek the counsel of a trusted medical provider. We also can’t yoga our way out of systemic oppressions, but yoga offers us a chance at improved self-awareness, imaginings, and resilience so we can better tackle harmful systems).
