Healers Steph Rizzo, Jenn Pipp and Lauren Olean will build the skeleton for the community altar, inviting those present to come forth with their offerings, aligning them to set an intention. Energy Healer Steph Rizzo will give a brief workshop on how to use crystal grids to channel and direct energy during meditation.
2-3p Rooftop yoga pt. 1: Saluting the Sun

Daniel James will give a hands-on structural bodywork demo. The goal of this work is to “find where your body is carrying most of its tension, and help you bring your breath and awareness to these places, as I stretch and lengthen the tissue to allow the body to realign and release its non-beneficial holding patterns.”
7:30-8:30p Rooftop Yoga: Moon Salutation
Steph Rizzo will instruct a yoga class on the roof that honors and salutes moon energy, symbolizing the receptivity and transformative power in each of us. All levels welcome! Ends with a guided meditation with optional Reiki healing.
