Mothers are superheroes, but even superheroes deserve a safe haven where they can take off their capes!
Join Marlene Boyette from Leela Yoga + Wellness for an afternoon of holistic wellness inspired by Company One Theatre's upcoming production of Black Super Hero Magic Mama.
Together, participants are welcomed to create an altar of remembrance and lasting love, and unwind with guided meditation, sound bath, gentle and restorative movement / stillness specifically designed for BIPOC mothers and caretakers, paired with a unique tea blend to take home and enjoy–created just for this event by herbalism artist Julissa Emile. Take an hour away from the demands of daily life to be in community with other mothers and caregivers and focus on YOU!
