Queer & Trans Yoga Kickoff @ Studio 34!
Saturday Dec 8, 2012 1:00pm-2:30pm in Philadelphia
Studio 34 is starting a WEEKLY Queer & Trans Yoga with Qui and shay(den)!

Starts December 8th from 1-2:30pm

FIRST 3 CLASSES ARE FREE (12/8, 12/15, 12/22)
No class on 12/29

and ONLY $10 starting in January!

Here is some info on the class:

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare”- Audre Lorde

Have you ever felt nervous about going to class because you didn’t feel like you, your body type, or expression would be represented by others in the room? Because your binder wouldn’t allow you to breathe? Your tuck wouldn’t let you comfortably stretch the way you wanted?

Those and so many other very real things are often times the deciding factors for Queer and/or Trans people’s willingness or ability to come practice yoga.

This Queer & Trans yoga class is an all-levels vinyasa (flow) class that will work with participants to make a space that affirms all of our identities in order allow you to focus on the practice and eventually be open to the deeper places yoga can take you. There will be a continued focus on breath, grounding, healing, and growth. Queer & Trans folks of all identities, expressions, bodies, sizes and abilities welcome. So, join Qui and shay for a practice filled with sweat, heart, laughter and community!


What should I wear? : Whatever makes you feel comfortable, except for jeans, knowing that you’re probably going to sweat.


What if I identify as gay, lesbian or bi and not queer or trans? : C’mon and join us, the whole LGBTQ community is welcome.
