SPECIAL TIME - THIS WEEK ONLY 12:00 PM PT - Easy Yoga To Recover From Your Day with Lotem Porat
If you've been sitting, zooming and using your mouse and keyboard all day, treat your body to this 1/2 hour, easy yoga class to get your flow and productivity back.

"Her yoga class is helping my stress from COVID and working from home and my back pain - she's great!"

SPECIAL TIME - THIS WEEK ONLY 12 PM PT - Energy Management with Alyse Hart
Learn and use breath and gentle movement techniques to manage your energy during these times. These 15 minute sessions are formulated for strength, inner balance, vision and calm.

"Alyse is amazing. I showed up for the class in a very foul mood after attending an unpleasant meeting. I wouldn't have been able to be productive for the rest of the day, if I was still in that mood. Alyse's class is like hitting a giant reset button! After the session I felt much more focused and I was able to be pleasantly productive for the rest of my day."

12 NOON PT - Mindfulness and Movement with Fred Sugerman

Use guided and self-initiated movement to access information, inspiration and freedom in your body and mind!

"I like the way Fred keeps "inviting" us to do what we can."

Dec 11

Please join us from 1:30-3:30PM PT (4:30-6:30PM EDT) as Denise Hamilton and Fred Sugerman from RACE RELAY (TM) create a safe space to talk about race.

"This was not what I expected, but was better! It was so very powerful!"

"Being in a multicultural room is so beneficial listening to personal experiences helps to make my life rich and deep and brings more love in!!"

"WITI has been facilitating a conversation on race. This program is one of the best and more needed spaces there is today. The facilitators and the participants are fantastic. Thank you for supporting this effort."
