About the Event

Manaaki Movement is a gentle guided movement meditation. A space to check in with your body and provide self care through movement.  

Manaaki is to care for, protect and show generosity towards others. This workshop invites us to explore movements that reflect Manaaki, Indigenous wisdoms, and the natural world. Through movement exploration and play, we are invited to deepen our connection to self, others & our environment.
