Program Vision:

Our intention for this Healing and Wellness Series is to offer our community curated healing and wellness practices across various modalities that collectively nurture us amid the tumultuous times we find ourselves in. Our goal is to disrupt the status quo of stress, isolation, and limited resources for accessible, inclusive health, wellness, and care by providing a wealth of sorely needed offerings. Through the series, we will strive to create an immersive multisensory experience that rebuilds connections between the mind, body, and soul, and bridges between one another.


2:00-3:15 PM

Mz Mr (she/her/ella), Tewa and Mexica descendant, is a burlesque and flamenco movement artist who has trained numerous dancers in the art of striptease for over 10 years with elements of improvisation, juggling and rhythmic gymnastics combined to explore gender euphoria, sensual insight, and improve balance.

Sensual Movement– A 60-90 minute exploration of the 4 Cardinal Emotions through embodied empathy and self-reflection and Gender Euphoria– A 60-90 minute exploration of props, poses, and perceptions of each person’s unique embodiment of gender.



Adi (they/he) is a 2nd generation Mexican and Puerto Rican, queer, trans, and non-binary embodiment practitioner, facilitator, body worker, and dancer.

Adi is a part of a matriarchal lineage of healers that use breath work, natural elements, and ancestral practices to help us connect back to our bodies and one another. This offering was made to help share the knowledge and integrate practices with folks who are curious about embodiment, who might not be able to afford 1-1 sessions, and who want to build a healing community here in Chicago. 

Embodiment Class: Deepening in the neck + shoulders

This class will focus on building the skill of staying connected to the body and becoming an intentional observer of it. We’ll start with some stretching exercises before we move into different postures to explore the energy that might be living or stuck in the neck + shoulders.

embodiment class. The focus of this class will be releasing grief.
