Restorative Yoga with Aviv: Renewing Our Bodies and Mind

  • November 11, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

  • Venue:


Looking for a way to destress, get better sleep, and connect with yourself all while keeping social justice at the forefront of your mind? Come join fellow 20s and 30s for a decolonizing restorative yoga event! This event will teach us how yoga and wellness have been co-opted and colonized by the west, and how we can partake in these crucial practices while honoring the roots of yoga. After a brief learning session, we will partake in a 60 minute restorative yoga session led by yoga instructor, Melissa Shah. Restorative yoga is slow, calm, and is something everyone can partake in and feel good about, regardless of prior experience.

Attendees of this event will also receive 25% off Melissa’s Find Your Breath Library subscription, as well as a list of follow up resources curated by Melissa.

Please note that this event will be taking place indoors in the main sanctuary. This is a large space that has had internal work done to create maximum air circulation. Windows will be open, social distancing will be implemented, and proof of vaccination and mask wearing will be mandatory.

Meet the Instructor

Melissa (she/her) is a Gujarati-American yoga therapist who skillfully adapts yoga and Ayurveda to the individual. She believes that yoga doesn’t need to be stripped of its culture and history in order for it to be palatable and beneficial to others. She is deeply interested in the intersection of yoga and social justice, and works to make feeling well accessible to all, but especially those who are often left out of the wellness conversation.
