Weekly Moves | June 20 – 26

Adapting to change is not always easy, but it’s a necessary part of growth. Whether it’s a new environment, relationship, body, thought, or movement, our ability to adapt is what makes us unique as individuals. This week, we are proud to introduce a new NM teacher and classes that will challenge you to be open and creative in how you modify your movement practice.
