Take Time for Self-Care | Dec. 16

We all know this has been an incredibly stressful year, full of many unforeseen challenges. And the holiday season adds a large amount of anxiety to many as well.

To encourage you take some time to care for yourself, we invite you to a wellness and self-care workshop, which will include yoga and mindfulness strategies led by Marjorie Grevious. This is our gift to you, as a thank you for your support this past year and beyond.

Please have a pen and something to write on available for your use. We also encourage you to have a “comfort object”- pillow/blanket – anything that inspires comfort for you.

We will resume our monthly Equity & Justice Conversation Series in January. Please watch for details on upcoming conversations on our website and social media.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When: Wednesday, Dec. 16, 4:30-5:15 p.m. CT   
  • Where: Zoom. Click to register in advance.
  • Who: Marjorie Grevious has been practicing yoga for 40 years and became a yoga teacher 10 years ago. She has certifications in yin yoga, trauma-informed yoga, prison yoga project and has taught classes in Hatha(slow flow) and restorative yoga both at YWCA St. Paul and at Yoga Sanctuary in south Minneapolis. She is a registered member of Yoga Alliance and the Black Yoga Teachers Association. She has a long career in social services working with youth and families in crisis both in the twin cites and southern California.
