There are no separate pieces in this creation and not one of us exists outside the whole. Every sincere effort counts in making a change
If you read enough headlines about the current state of the environment, you are likely to get discouraged about the future of our planet, perhaps even feel helpless in the face of these real threats. The good news is we all have the potential to become agents of change through conscious awareness and small acts of kindness, as we rethink the way we live.
The practice of yoga is about attuning to our inner environment and aligning with our external environment.
With Beirut City’s skyscape as a backdrop, come and explore these themes and more with Yoga Instructor Danielle Abisaab, as she guides you through a vigorous and detoxifying yoga practice designed to integrate the idea that there are no inconsequential actions, only consequential inactions.
Class will be accompanied by a live DJ set with Jana Saleh, and followed with some leisure time to eat, drink, connect and giggle

- Yoga Class 10:00 am > 12:00 pm
