Announcing a new Meetup for "Yalla Arabi!": East Bay Arabic Language Learning!

What: Down Dog Dialogue + Casual Conversation 8

When: Saturday, October 9,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Bayt Gwen Winter
1415 Allman St.
Oakland, CA 94602

Here's a twist! shock

A short 20 minute yoga instruction class done in ARABIC...then Casual Conversation 8 Dialogue happens, focusing on the theme of health, exercise, nutrition and living well. You will hear and speak Arabic, and write if you like, in either Arabic or English transliteration. Saleh will lead.

Our member Gwen Winter will be starting us off by leading Kundalini Yoga, Arabic style.. The focus is more on breathing and movement of energy through the body, than on flexibility, and poses. There is lots of movement, but participants only do what does not move into pain, but just nudges up against it.

One is always encouraged to stop and rest when needed. Those who feel they are not in good enough shape - not to worry! If you can't sit on the floor, it can be done in a chair. Wear whatever you have on for the day as long as it's comfortable. Bring a mat if you have one, otherwise there are chairs and space on a couple rugs.
