This class invites folks identifying as LGBTQIA++ & or gender non-binary/non-conforming to explore yoga as a healing practice. Whatever your story is -whether you are questioning, experience straight-passing privilege, or have specific words to describe your identity – this class will meet you as you are.
We will cultivate compassion and build community through intentional movement, exploring themes of LGBTQIA++ identity and mindfulness along the way. For marginalized communities, yoga spaces can be a source of pain and exclusion; as a trans and queer affirming class, we will celebrate and nurture our authentic selves and intersecting truths as we practice together!
In class, we will explore movement and breath through a slow flow sequence to cultivate healing self-expression and communal wellness. This class is dedicated to meeting the needs of folks that participate, but will always include a combination of asana (physical postures) pranayama (breathing), and some use of props. All bodies and levels of experience are welcome and encouraged.
For Audrey, Yoga is an ongoing practice in honoring our bodies' truths and recognizing our interconnected nature. In class, she invites us to be authentic, body-affirming, and playful in what can sometimes feel like an all-too-serious discipline. She received her 200 hr RYT in Yoga for Health and Wellness through Maka Movement, and has since taken trainings through Child Light Yoga and the Yoga Prison Project. She has experience teaching at various community-focused spaces and currently teaches Vinyasa Flow and Chair-based Yoga.
