Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” – Audre Lorde


The word radical comes from the word root. To pull up the roots of injustice, to be radical, takes energy and strength. We need to balance our outward action by resourcing and nourishing our bodies, minds, and hearts.

This is a Restorative Yoga class for People of Color (POC). Restorative yoga is designed to restore your vital energy, rather than use it. In this extended restorative practice, you will be guided into passive and slightly active poses with the support of props. No previous yoga experience is required. Dress in comfortable clothing with layers for warmth.

Lay Down to Rise Up takes place at 8 Limbs Capitol Hill. The studio is located on the 2nd floor, stairwell access.
