What is Social Stretch?

Social Stretch is a 30-minute, donation-based yoga class, hosted Live on Zoom with a new teacher every class. You can practice for free or donate $5-$30 (if you would like to donate more please email [email protected]). All of the donations - minus the teachers fee of $25 and processing fees - will go directly to the charity or organization of the teachers choice. The Prism Light House does not take a portion of proceeds.

After the 30-minute yoga class there will be a Social Hour Live on Zoom. This is a space for everyone to meet each other and share their experience from the practice. You're encouraged to continue your conversations and grow your connections after the Social Hour ends.

The next Social Stretch class will be on Sunday, July 26 at 1 PM CST.

Hi! I'm Rachelle W., your teacher for this week.

The charity I chose is Black Space Winnipeg.

Click here to find out more about Black Space Winnipeg.

I chose this charity because the Black Lives Matter movement has been a big eye opener for me in 2020. I have witnessed terrible things on television and social media that highlight the injustices still occurring because of racism. One of Black Space Winnipeg's recent projects is Project Heal which is their mental health support program. I am going back to school to work on my masters in guidance and counseling and know the importance of mental health resources being readily accessible and available to all.

I believe in holding space for others, the body mind connection and honouring your body in the practice. Yoga is my happy place, no matter what kind of day I may be having I always leave my mat feeling lighter. Yoga is not my primary source of income, I teach it because it is a passion and I have so much gratitude to be able to share the benefits of yoga with others.
