Yoga and Dance at the Temple to Music Offers Beneficial Classes For All
There’s a dance and yoga class for everyone, whether your goal is to release some tension, find your strength and creativity, or learn some Afro-Latin choreography.
The Roger Williams Park Conservancy will be hosting yoga and dance sessions led by the Haus of Glitter Company at the Temple to Music starting from July 7 to July 16. Most classes will start at 8 a.m., but guests have the freedom to come and go whenever they please.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy these classes, regardless of age or gender, and how you spend the class is completely up to you; either follow the instructor or do your own thing. Make sure to bring plenty of water as well as a yoga mat, towel or blanket to practice on.
There will be multiple instructors from the Haus of Glitter Company, which is a community of educators, performers, artists, therapists and healers who are all dedicated to exploring the aspects of learning, play, liberation and different types of growth. Join talented instructors like Assitan ‘Sita’ Coulibaly, who is a Malian-American writer, dancer and choreographer, and Matthew Rolando Garza, who is a Queer Tejanx/Latinx performnce artist, Contemporary Afro-Latin choreographer, healer and educator.
There are three different classes that you can choose to sign up for: restorative yoga is all about rest, relaxation, tension release and slowing down; justice yoga explores endurance, groundedness, compassion, strength and creativity, which teaches how all of these things are required to practice justice; and the Afro-Latin dance classes where guests can learn about the dance styles while connecting with ancestral wisdom. All classes are free with registration required.
