 May 1 is a celebration with a long and varied history, dating back millennia. Throughout the years, there have been many festivities worldwide, most with the express purpose of welcoming in a change of season.  In the 19th century, May Day took on a new meaning, as an International Workers’ Day grew out of the 19th-century movement for labor rights and an eight-hour work day in the US. This is a slow flow class designed to warm your muscles and link movement to breath.  Feel renewed for the weekend ahead.  Notify instructor of health issues.  Bring a mat and water bottle.
