Queer Yoga: Saturday Samadhi

FEVERHEAD- Get Directions
1199 Goodale Blvd.
$5.00 - $8.00
Queer Yoga is Columbus's first queer-focused yoga class that offers professional yoga instruction in a designate Safe(r) Space. We endeavor to cultivate an atmosphere of acceptance and community in all we do, from sun salutations to post-yoga tea time. Whether you are new to yoga, or you can complete a headstand without assistance, you will find something to challenge and deepen your practice. Class fees are $5 for students, and $8 for the general public. Everyone is welcome. Bring a mat. Tea and vegan treats included in every session. Saturday classes will include 20 minutes of seated meditation in the Buddhist Vipassana or "Insight" tradition, presented in a secular manner. Vipassana encourages non-judgmental, calming awareness of the body and mind by cultivating an active experience of change and impermanence, making it an ideal complement to our yoga practice. We encourage you to bring a yoga block, zafu (traditional buckwheat-filled meditation pillow), or other cushion to ensure a comfortable posture. If you are interested in purchasing a zafu, please contact Lauren Strawn or Caleb Founds for information.
