THIS EVENT HAS PASSED
A Workshop with Dr. Wendy Suzuki / Presented by Don’t You Feel It Too?
This event is FREE, plus suggested donation. Sign up HERE.
Why do we feel so good when we move? What happens in our brains and bodies when we exercise and dance? Dr. Suzuki shares with us her work on how aerobic exercise can improve learning, memory, and higher cognitive abilities. She will offer her first impression of the mind-body practice Don’t You Feel It Too? and theorize what may be the benefits of this practice for a happier life.
The workshop is participatory and will begin with a DYFIT session outdoors. Everyone is welcome.
BRING: your earbuds and best pocket music. (We’ll have extra earbuds if you forget.) Dress to move outdoors.
