Our changing world requires us to release old patterns and to open new pathways of understanding, connecting as one human family. Women of all backgrounds, hues, and persuasions are invited to come together to embrace and honor their inner voices and learn from one another as we seek change and transformation.

Through the integrative lens and practice of yoga, along with meditation and dialogue, Maya Breuer and Jana Long help us find the courage to look within, share stories about ourselves, and, most importantly, listen to others who may come from differing perspectives while holding space with respect. Daily topics, activities, and exercises include

  • Yoga flows that embrace the rhythm of change
  • A focus on breath, movement, and spirit
  • Discussion and Q&A about the social constructs of inclusivity
  • Celebration of a new paradigm: be the change!

Join us to raise awareness, inspire self-reflection, and enhance cultural competencies that foster inclusivity and promote change.
