Tslagi – The People’s Practice
This Dance of Prayer, Balance, and Peace honors all relationships. This sacred, centering movement of alignment is similar to Tai Chi and Qi Gong practices – that all ages can enjoy. Originally from the Cherokee tradition, this “give-away” offering is fun and simple. Ideally done outside on the earth, alone or in large groups. Join us for this transformative exercise!
