About The Event

Dancing Mindfulness, a growing practice created in this unique community format by Youngstown's own Dr. Jamie Marich is moving its local home to The Cornelius Gallery starting Thursday February 12, 2015. Classes will be held every week at 7:30pm… this first class at the gallery will be a benefit for the Sojourner House, Mahoning County's shelter for survivor's of domestic violence. Cash donations for the class will go to the Sojourner House, and we will also be accepting donations of feminine products or hygiene products for the shelter. This benefit is part of the One Billion Rising Movement to "rise" on behalf of women everywhere through the arts. One Billion Rising/V-Day Events dictate that proceeds for events go towards local organizations. To read more about Dancing Mindfulness and to see sample videos, go to www.dancingmindfulness.com Dancing Mindfulness is a "come as you are" dance experience--- no prior dance training or yoga training necessary… just come with an open mind and an open heart. Dancing Mindfulness is an improvisational practice that promotes listening and responding to the needs of the body in the present moment. All Dancing Mindfulness classes are donation-based ($10-15 suggested)
