This class, taught by Helen Lee & Chih-Hsien Lin, focuses on finding ease, support, and increased capacity in your body. If you are interested in exploring embodiment in a non-judgemental environment that centers connection, this class is for you.

Classes are Thursdays from 5:30pm - 6:30pm, September 19th - November 7th, 2024. Chih-Hsien will be teaching Sept 19th - Oct 10th and Helen Lee will be teaching Oct 17th - Nov 7th. Jonathan Meyer will be subbing on Sept 26th.


This class may be subbed by another teacher. We encourage pre-registration and early purchases of drop-in classes, so that if a class has to be cancelled for health or safety concerns, the teacher can let you know by email. If you are doing a last-minute drop-in class and want to be assured there is no unexpected last-minute cancellation, you can let the teacher know you plan to attend (Helen:  [email protected], Chih-Hsien: [email protected]). If we have to cancel a class, we will schedule a make up class at the end of the series.


* We welcome all people with disabilities to our events. If you require a specific access service to fully participate or have any questions about accessibility, contact Julia Antonick at [email protected]. Please be in touch as soon as you know you would like to join us so we can make sure we have the accommodations ready for you on the day you will attend.

** We welcome people of all ages to our events. While this class is geared toward adults, children are welcome to come with their caregiver.

*** TRIGGER WARNING: In addition to the fact that the name “Indian Boundary” denotes a line created to ethnically cleanse the area, there is also imagery within the fieldhouse that may be triggering to many, in particular to Native Americans and Jews. We want to notify people in advance as a trigger warning, and to affirm Khecari’s anti-racist stance.
