Yoga & Bjork: Embracing Fearless Self Expression

23270352_622596481409464_8820828073660657932_o.jpg

Join Kim Horstman for this creative sequence to cultivate the bold courage behind true self-expression. As artists, our creativity is powered by our ability to express our true feelings through a limitless variety of mediums. In Yoga, the channel for self-expression is governed by the Throat Chakra. This center is where our thoughts, intuition, emotions, and past experiences converge and become translated into art, speech, song, dance, etc. We will flow through a brilliantly weird and unique sequence of poses to tap into that center of self-expression. Through movement and mindfulness, we will challenge any limiting beliefs that hold us back from truly unlocking our power for artistic expression. 

In honor of wholely authentic, fearless expression, we will move through this flow to the unique sounds of Bjork. Her vision for capturing the complex essence of humanity and nature will inspire our movement and our journey to express ourselves with self-love and courage. You will leave this workshop feeling a sense of energetic renewal towards your unique self, your emotions, and your creativity. This workshop is open to beginners, although some prior experience is recommended. 

$25, drop-ins welcome.

Twelve-year-olds Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) have fallen in love and decide to run away. But a violent storm is approaching the island, forcing a group of quirky adults (Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray) to mobilize a search party and find the youths before calamity strikes.

Terra Rene is a Philadelphia-based writer, visual artist, and the founder / editor of Recenter Press. Most of her work explores unlearning toxic conditioning, the nonlinear process of following intuition, and mystical experiences that have emerged out of trauma as much as the fruition of dreams. She is the author of the illustrated collection of poems "An Old Blue Light," and her work has appeared in The Huffington Post, BUST Magazine, Cordella Magazine, and more. You can find her on Instagram @aterraterra.

Richelle Kota is a writer, nature enthusiast, and a student living in Philadelphia. Earlier this year she released her first self-published work, Where There Were Roses: A Memoir Through Poems. She aspires to live a very simple life on a farm with many pigs, goats, and dogs. You can find her on Instagram @tiniestdad.

Lora Mathis is a nonbinary poet, musician, and visual artist who uses their work as a tool for healing and self-reclamation. Author of "Instinct to Ruin," they coined the term "radical softness as a weapon" and have been featured in Polyester, BUST, Bitch, and The Guardian. You can find them on Instagram @lora.mathis.
