This series will give you a 101 on meditation and deepen the practice of those who already meditate. In typical Social Yoga fashion, things are kept light hearted and conversational to make it 0% intimidating. After all, we can’t take ourselves too seriously if we’re meditating in a vintage streamline trailer! After the meditation, the gals at Tin Can Studio will lead the group through a meditative craft. Each class builds on top of the other and each person can take home their craft at the end of the series. | register
