We invite you to ground yourselves in calm on Friday, February 12th – OneTable and the Young Adult Division of Greater Pittsburgh are excited to welcome Gavriela Burston from Haven Yoga + Meditation, who will lead us (virtually) through an hour of restorative yoga, grounding, and meditation to ease us into Shabbat.
Through accessible (and scalable) movements, Gavriela will guide us in dynamic movement and restorative stillness – to release tension, to connect with your breath, yourselves, and others in community- setting the tone for a rejuvenating Shabbat ahead.
Come as you are and take what you need. We empower you to make this gentle yoga experience your own – no judgement, no expectations! All experience levels are encouraged to join.
No yoga mat? No problem! Join us from the floor, on a towel or blanket, the couch, your bed, or any surface that feels accessible, comfortable and supportive for this experience.
As we create space for rest and before our yoga practice begins, we’ll take a few minutes to set our intentions for this Shabbat by creating an altar from items available to you: to elevate this space and time into something sacred. Bring your wine or water, candles or crystals – whatever resonates with you to make this experience special.
Gavriela Burston, founder + owner of Haven Yoga + Meditation, specializes in practicing trauma sensitive yoga and meditation. She aims to create a safe space in which we can become more familiar with ourselves, our thoughts, sensations, and emotions, with a focus on healthy internal boundaries. Gavriela earned her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology with a concentration in Gender and Sexuality Studies from Bard College, is trained as a doula, and in the practice of Shiatsu. She received her 200 hour RYT teacher training through the Asheville Yoga Center, with additional experience in polyvagal theory and trauma sensitive yoga.
Located in Regent Square, Haven Yoga + Meditation offers a spacious yoga studio, as well as a lovely meditation garden, complete with meditation cushions, bubbles, chalk and hula hoops. They currently offer socially distanced, online, and covid-pod group classes as well as individual sessions and workshops.
RSVPs will be cut off 30 minutes before event start time.
