Love Sessions


Love Sessions are weekly engagements with local movement facilitators. These guided sessions are being offered to help folks get back into their moving bodies, with ease and love. Every Thursday of November, join us as we find ways to move with each other in this virtual + in studio hybrid program. Let us gather without the pressure to feel ready. Let us hold each other in curiosity, uncertainty, and in the pleasure of togetherness.

Pharrell, MC Lyte and BlackSTREET to name just a few. She's been featured on etalk, Toronto Life, Toronto Star, Dance Current and countless publications in North America and abroad.
