Community Day: Self-Love, Self-Care
It’s the final day to visit Through Positive Eyes! Join us in celebrating human resilience with a variety of health and wellness workshops plus healthy food and tea. This program honors the generosity and courage of the Through Positive Eyes Artivists, who shared their stories of living positively with HIV/AIDS throughout the run of the exhibition. Artivists will share their experiences on stage in the gallery on Sunday at 1, 2 and 3 pm. Performances last approximately 45 minutes.
Co-sponsored by the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine. Free and open to all.
Yin-Yasa Yoga with Nina Jagasia & Ethereal Sound Bath by Kate Eipl
Bring your own mat!
This class explores the yin and yang sides of yoga in a well rounded and mindfully sequenced way. Rather than shocking the body and moving right into vigorous asana, this class begins with yin postures, opening the body to flexibility while encouraging ease of mind. Once body and mind are prepared, we move towards more movement and flow. All levels welcome. Follow at @namastenina and @ms.kate.eiplhealing.
