Class Description:

Love Letters 2 Your Body is an open investigation / framework exploring somatic practices as a space to imagine outside the complexities of normalcy. Imagine space inside an embodied practice of care + joy + collective calling + love. The practice starts with writing a love letter to your self as ode and then guided practice to honor your body.
