Love YOU: Body, Mind, and Soul
Mindful Movement returns with a special workshop focused on loving ourselves for the wonderful beings that we are. Using creative movement, we will celebrate all the parts that we love about our bodies, our minds, and our souls. Remember, you don’t need any prior dance experience to attend a Mindful Movement workshop. Just an open mind, an open heart and a willingness to be creative. Take time for yourself and come move with us!
