The DC Center is excited to launch the latest arm of our supportive services, Center Wellness!
Center Wellness is a complement to our Behavioral Health Services* which allows our LGBTQ+ community members to continue their healing journey with somatic and mindfulness practices.
Our free weekly classes are a combination of yoga, breathwork and meditation. Check our wellness practitioners and sign up for a class below!
RSVP cut off is every Friday at 5pm. You will be sent the Zoom link by Friday 6pm each week for that Saturday’s class.
To help us continue these services, we will also periodically survey participants for feedback for our grant reports. Thank you for your help – and we are so glad to be able to support your wellness!
