Period Movement Donation Class

Join Natasha for an all levels class Oct 12 12:15-1:15 to raise awareness and hopefully some menstrual products for local women in need. Please consider donating menstrual products in lieu of paying for class. If you cannot attend but want to help the Nook will be collecting products Oct. 1 -12.

If you’d like to register for class to save your spot click this link

About Period Movement: “While struggling with homelessness as a teen, Nadya Okamoto discovered the biggest challenge of their living situations: “The unaddressed natural need of periods.” That’s why Okamoto started PERIOD.org, a nonprofit that gives women access to the period products they need to feel confident and clean every menstruation cycle, no matter their income. Now, it’s the largest youth-run nonprofit in women’s health.”

Period Movement serves our local communities bringing supplies to local schools, YWCA, and food banks just to name a few. They are using their platform to educate about period poverty and lobbying for the repeal of taxes on menstrual products.

If you’d like to support the Period Movement further, a rally will take place in Norfolk Oct. 19 click the Facebook link for the event and more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/738981049890832/

Your teacher:
Stacy Faherty, RYT 200

Stacy was first introduced to the practice of yoga 12 years ago in college when she registered to take a Hatha Yoga class to fulfill a physical education requirement. Stacy had no idea that by taking this elected course her life would forever be changed. She received her RYT 200 with the Nook and enjoys practicing as well as teaching restorative yoga, mindful, breath centered movement, Yin Yoga, and Chair Yoga. Stacy’s style of teaching is breath centered and focuses on how one feels in a posture rather than how one looks. We all come to our mats for different reasons but the end result is the same.  We are striving to feel connected to our eternal truth, whether we realize it or not. As a teacher, Stacy’s mission is to create a safe and all-inclusive space to allow students to feel the freedom to explore their bodies, make friends with their breath, and expand their consciousness for all that is good, right within. The Bhagavad Gita tells, us that, “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self” all it takes is an ounce of willingness and the rest will unfold just as it should.
