Ends: Thursday, Jul. 11 8:15 AM (Eastern)

Room: 125

As activists we often get caught up in the perception of progress through busy-ness and neglect the necessity of health, balance, focus and calm. Our morning flow will ground your day in peace and clarity before diving into the business/busy-ness of the conference. We’ll do light stretching, joint mobility enhancements, breathing and relaxation exercises to begin your day the right way.

Achieving this balance is how we catalyze transformative change.
