San Francisco Friday Night Practice
In order to help contain the Corona Virus
we are suspending in person class for now.
For Those with a Regular Biodanza Practice
We invite you to
Biodanza Virtual Community Connection Class
We invite newcomers to join us when
we return to the Studio
Laugh ~ Breathe ~ Move ~ Release Anxiety ~ Feel Good & at Ease, Surrounded by Friends
As usual, we will begin with open sharing as a group, and then move into music and movement. We will leave you in a good space to roll right into bed, feeling full of love, peaceful and calm.
Our in-person classes are $25. We know some of you may also be in financial strain right now, so please pay as much as you are able.
Pre-send payment through Paypal https://paypal.me/ClaraRubinSmith (Please do not click the box, to save us the processing fee)
Please Set Up in Advance (so we don’t need to do technology during class):
Download Zoom - for free - on your computer or mobile device, https://zoom.us/.
Please make sure you have enough space to move around and that your screen is set up so you can see yourself at least from the waist up. What you see is what we see.
Make sure your lighting is behind the computer or phone screen (rather than behind you) so we can all better see and connect with you.
It's a good idea to join the class 10-minutes early (around 7:50pm) to exchange greetings and verify that the software is working for you.
Please keep your camera enabled to create the connections we are seeking.
If you like your music loud, we suggest using powered speakers that amplify the sound on your end.
