YAMA YOGA support Mass Story Lab
June 17 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm| donation
YAMA YOGA will be hosting an all level, donation based yoga and meditation class on Saturday, June 16th from 6:15-7:45pm benefiting Mass Story Lab’s spring fundraiser. Mass Story Lab is a participatory storytelling project designed by storyteller, educator, and cultural organizer, Piper Anderson. Mass Story Lab aims to make stories an instrument of justice. In a Mass Story Lab the stories of people directly impacted by mass incarceration become the transformative lens through which communities imagine a world beyond prisons. Mass Story Lab aims to reach 20 U.S communities between 2016-2018. Mass Story Labs facilitate discussion, participation, and collaboration and serve as community platforms to confront the impacts of mass incarceration. Through engaged story circles, dialogue, and design sessions, Mass Story Labs articulate the real lived experiences of mass incarceration affecting our communities in order to design more restorative approaches to justice.
Class will include an introduction to Mass Story Lab, vinyasa flow led by Lindsay Yeager, and Meditation led by Piper Anderson followed by tea!
