PRIDE Yoga with The Phoenix Project
Dates: September 4th and September 18th
Location: OUTMemphis (892 S Cooper)
This trauma-informed therapeutic yoga class series is being offered free of charge to the LGBTQ+ community of the Mid-South by The Phoenix Project. This initiative aims to help heal trauma beyond talk-therapy. From their website:
“The Phoenix Project is an initiative to provide free trauma-informed yoga services to the Memphis community. We were founded in 2019 by Caroline Schratz, a local mental health therapist and yoga teacher. Her dream to help at risk populations in her hometown became a reality when she started fundraising to start a women’s therapeutic yoga group. The overwhelming support she received from the community led Caroline to realize there was a need to expand her services to reach even more people. Thus, The Phoenix Project was born. Through trauma-informed yoga, we can help bring healing to our city and hope to our neighbors.”
These two classes will be free, open to the public, and will not require the participants to bring anything. Instructor Caroline Schratz will be conducting the sessions with the intent of it becoming a regular recurring event at OUTMemphis, provided there is enough community interest.
We invite you to join us in this class series. All are welcome to participate.
