Growing up we’re taught to learn and understand using our brains but aren’t taught much about how to listen to or learn about what our bodies tell us. In this healing arts workshop we’ll explore some movement and breathing techniques to deepen our connection with our bodies and our personal energy. In better understanding of our bodies we can better manage difficulties and stress when they arise as well as notice and manage the parts of ourselves that cause us stress.
As part of our on-going Healing Arts programing, Kid’s Yoga in Ventura is returning to Bell Arts Factory. The classes, run by Hitchcock Children’s Center, a creative enrichment program, are designed for Yogis ages 6-12, and beginning Sept. 5. The classes will run every Tuesday at 3:15 throughout the school year, offering a great after-school program right here on Ventura Ave.
Bell Arts Factory is excited to announce our new community mangers, Maribel Hernandez and Rico Mandel. Both Maribel and Rico are tenants here and have signed on to help with some of the business needs here at BAF. They’ve already been hard at work on a few projects, and we are very happy to have them as a part of the team!
