Yoga and Community Circle with Ambar
Ambar will facilitate a (Yogi’s) Sacred Circle. The first half will invite grounding through somatic awareness. Breath work and gentle, accessible-to-all yoga will ease us into the language of our bodies. The second half will be a community circle. We will go around the (Zoom) room and introduce ourselves by name, pronouns, and a concise body awareness check-in (“shoulders feel tight,” “hips feel open and relaxed,” etc.). Ambar will choose and then recite a reading with the intention to inspire community connection. The floor will then be opened up for checking in on what is present in our lives and/or sharing what the reading opened up for us in our individual experience. Pre-register on eventbrite!
