Schedule of events:
Mental Health and Inclusive Yoga
Bring a mat and some comfortable clothes while we practice inclusive and body-positive yoga and meditation with a local yoga instructor. If an instructor isn’t available, we’ll be using free videos courtesy of Jessamyn Stanley (author of Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get On the Mat, Love Your Body. and Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance). Mental health resources will be available from our partners with the LGBT Life Center.
Beat the Heat with DIY Ice Cream Treats!
Get out of the sun and enjoy some dairy and dairy-free ice cream! Make your own sundaes and check out our Outwire757 guides for summer ideas in the area. We’ll also have fun books to read while wearing costumes, so wear your funnest and finest!
Terrarium and Succulent Gardens
Time to get your hands dirty and plant away the day! Join us and the LGBT Life Center to make your own terrarium with cactuses and other succulent mini-gardens.
