----------

The South LA Wellness Tour is a FREE 7-day community initiative created by South LA Wellness - a collective of local wellness practitioners - in partnership with adidas + Wanderlust, with the purpose of deepening mindfulness practices in the South Los Angeles area.

Throughout the week, we will bring together community members, wellness practitioners + local Community Partners to share in heart-centered dialouge + practice all for the purpose of encouraging self-care + promoting collective community healing.

Our intention is to TRULY be an inclusive + affirming space for all ages, abilities + body types to come together to collectively deepen our connection to each other + ourselves.

We want to see you even if you are new to yoga, have never sat in meditation a day in your life, if you're an elder reconnecting with yourself, if you have a larger body and still not sure if any of these practices are for you. Your blackness will be loved here, your age is celebrated, your sexual identity + gender expression(s) are respected + your abilities are important to us.

Please keep in mind, some workshops have a limited capacity. Priority will be given to registered attendees first.
