Did you know that regularly moving your body has been shown to boost mood by increasing a brain protein that helps nerve fibers grow called BDNF?
I help black women connect with their bodies, so they have a greater sense of what it feels like to be well.
And by well, I mean vital, alive, and whole.
Having lived with depression for more than 20 years, this strong black woman knows a thing or two about feeling numb and disconnected from both my body and my emotions.
I am the queen of pushing through with a straight face because if I don't do it, who else is gonna make a way outta no way!
If you're here, I imagine you are too!
No. The only requirement is that you are human and interested in exploring the ways in which your body interacts and responds to your emotions and life situations.
This exploration can happen in small and big ways — from breath, to noticing your heart beat, to opening and closing your hands, or bigger movements.
The first session will be held on May 21, 2020 and we'll meet every other Thursday thereafter from 7-8:15pm EST (convert to your timezone here).

We'll meet virtually, via online video conference, using a platform called Zoom.
