Monday is for lovers. And loving oneself is the foundation for extending our love outward.
Gender affirmation looks different for everyone based on what is accessible and available, safe, and personally affirming to the individual. There is no right or wrong way to affirm gender, and while you’re here...you may find yourself empowered to start your own journey to thrive as your authentic self.
Here’s what we know...
Trans people experience an unfair burden to affirm their gender to society in order to be seen as real or valid.
Today, we’re going to shut out the noise.
📿Mindful Mondays📿 with our host Avery for Gender Affirming Meditation at 8am ET
About the class
Trans and nonbinary gender expression is an offering of love to the universe within you, and all around you. You are so worthy of happiness! You’re allowed to be soft, to rest, and feel all the things, including the sweet ones. To be honest with what you need and want. Your happiness nourishes the collective! There’s room for everyone in the journey towards gender justice and freedom to embrace our full selves. Folks who identify as genderqueer, trans, enby, gender nonconforming, and allies too are warmly welcomed to this relaxing, affirming guided meditation to explore the boundless space beyond the binary.

All you have to do is show up to join the movement.
Motivation is fleeting, and we know how hard it can be to get it back once it’s gone. But, it’s important to remember that getting it back is completely in your control. The benefits of yoga are well-known to have a lasting effect on our mood, health, and focus. That’s why folks in the U.S spend over $16 million on yoga classes and equipment each year 🤯
Ofc, you don’t have to spend a cent on classes or equipment here. We’ve got a pretty amazing yoga class with Tiffany(@creatingbalms) that’s free and doesn’t require any equipment. Why? Because we want to make your day significantly better.
💆Self-Care Sundays💆 with Tiffany for Move From Within Yoga at 10:00 am EST
In this Move From Within yin yoga class with Tiffany Curtis of Indwell Collaborative, you will be invited to connect to spiritual messages that are awakened through asana practice, giving space to commune with your inner knowing.
P.S. Did you miss any classes this week? No worries! Check them out here and here.
