It’s Cancer Season, and Stef & Meghan want to celebrate their birthday month with you in a way that is authentic to them ~ In community & nature, with music, movement & mindfulness!
To top it all, Ro Nwosu (from WildRoga) will be guiding us into one of her famous Yoga practices - designed for body & mind, infused with a whole lot of self-love! Moving out bodies to her rhythms.
Emotional, compassionate & nurturing, Cancer's energy encourages us to get in touch with needs, wants, feelings and to connect with our nearests and dearests. Cancer season is a time to find downtime in community and enjoy summertime in friendships.
And so we would like to invite you all to gather with us on the Just Food Farm land, for a morning shared outdoors supported by mindfulness practices through yoga, Forest Bathing therapy, meditation, journaling, movement to release, energize & claim our belonging.
There will be treats, drinks, a safe space where all are welcomed; and plenty of little surprises along the way.
Come indulge in the nurturing energy of Cancer and take that time to celebrate with us in community!
