The answer is ‘right here’.
I hope this post finds you in good health! I am enjoying the process of becoming acclimated to this new environment at weSPARK, especially meeting some of the guests who call weSPARK ‘home.’
Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting many of our Spanish speaking guests! I was ecstatic to get to know a bit more of the Latina women who come to weSPARK. As it turns out, we have a strong Latino presence here at weSPARK… and it’s growing!
The introduction of Spanish language programming in 2014 has encouraged many of our Spanish speaking guests to take advantage of the free services weSPARK offers. On Tuesdays, weSPARK offers a Spanish Yoga Class with instructor Erica Rey at 11am. This 60 minute yoga class is a great way to meet other Spanish speaking weSPARK guests while engaging in a calming and meditative healing practice. The lights are off, calming music plays in the background, and a candle burns in the center of the room, creating a circle in which our collective positive energy is centered.
You do not have to be a Yoga pro to attend! I am very new to yoga and loved the class. Initially, I was nervous that I would not be able to replicate the stances but eventually I was able to focus on my breathing, relax my mind and just let go.
“It is not about the movements and poses you make,” I recall Ms. Rey telling the class, “it is about how you breathe and relax.”
Join us every Tuesday at weSPARK, meet new people, create meaningful relationships, and find your inner peace. weSPARK also hosts a Spanish Speaking support group for cancer patients and survivors every Friday at 11am.
