  • Community Yoga with Cultural Fabric

    Join us for a November community yoga series in partnership with Cultural Fabric! This yoga class will include some self reflection as part of a community (you choose how much you share). Our community conversation is an opportunity to share your own lived wisdom and your questions. Self-study, self-inquiry is one of the aspects of yogic study and we will incorporate this during our time together and what arises in the group will inform our physical yoga practice. Yoga invites us to use all our faculties of body-mind-spirit to increase our potential and to help us understand ourselves and how to harness our full potential. During this time, yoga can help us discover greater ease, balance, and resilience within. Ultimately, yoga connects us to subtler forms of energy, drawing us closer to our own higher levels of consciousness. Come experience for yourself. Melissa Alexis founded Cultural Fabric in 2016 to integrate mindfulness into the daily fabric of our lives. She supports people to tap into the value of states of heightened awareness for personal, professional, and organizational well-being. In this era of the pandemic, she believes now is the time for us to co-create an ecosystem prioritizing internal development for our collective well-being.

  • Becoming Odyssa: Adventures on the Appalachian Trail

    After graduating from college, Jennifer is drawn to the Appalachian Trail, a 2,175-mile footpath that stretches from Georgia to Maine. The next four months are the most physically and emotionally challenging of her life. With every step she takes, Jennifer transitions from an over-confident college graduate to a student of the trail, braving situations she never imagined before her thru-hike. The trail is full of unexpected kindness, generosity, and humor. And when tragedy strikes, she learns that she can depend on other people to help her in times of need. Jennifer Pharr Davis is an internationally recognized adventurer, sought after speaker, critically acclaimed author and successful entrepreneur who is able to translate her experiences into a path that allows people to better navigate their work - and their world. An expert on "what it takes to keep going," Jennifer has covered over 14,000 miles of trails on six different continents. In 2011, she set the overall record on the Appalachian Trail by finishing the 2,185 mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days – an average of 47 miles per day, She is the first and only woman to hold this title. Jennifer has backpacked over 700 miles pregnant, walked across North Carolina nursing her son, and hiked in all fifty states with her daughter. She is a proponent of "moving women forward" in every season of life. Jennifer is a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, one of Men's Journal's 25 Most Adventurous Women of the Past 25 Years, and is in the upcoming IMAX film Into America's Wild.
