Come play with renewal, balance, and each other for the Spring Equinox.

Spring is the InterPlay of Winter & Summer

Special Thursday night class with all-genders welcome
John Diller and Connors John McConville

Oakland, CA

Thursday, March 21st, 7pm-8:25 pm, in person

The SF Bay Area is in bloom and we are yawning and stretching into longer days. Join the Thursday night class and others IN PERSON to celebrate the balance point between winter and summer: An easy, fun way to shake out winter stiffness, turn toward the sun, and welcome your own renewal. We will play & move, share some stories, emerge from our cocoons, and welcome whatever comes.

COVID-19 protocols: We require that folks either take a same-day COVID test and test negative or wear an N95 or KN95 mask during class. Also, if you are new to the group, please bring your vaccination card. Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for people with a wide variety of health situations. (In addition, we will be running a high-performance air purifier during the class.)
