On August 11th we are excited to explore the many aspects of life that make us uniquely who we are. How we move and express ourselves makes us who we are! For this event we’ll have the yoga and meditation guides from The Art Of Us studios in Carytown on hand for a large group yoga and meditation session in the gardens.

Kat, co-owner of TAOU Studio, artfully crafts each teaching experience with creativity and intention. She believes that through this practice we can practically, actively, and consciously move through ourselves, with ourselves, in order to know ourselves better on & off the mat.

Katie, co-owner of TAOU Studio, believes art and movement have incredible power to shift our perspectives and improve our lives in meaningful ways. As a yoga instructor, massage therapist, and photographer, she has a deep reverence for bodies and what they are capable of overcoming and achieving.

This event will also include a workshop curated by Richmond Young Writers to help young minds express themselves through literature. To close out this event we’ll also have a special Poetry Reading curated by Gallery5. Local poets like “#PoemsforPeopleRVA” will share their words and vibes with the audience. Come explore expression and motion with some of Richmond’s finest community organizations!
