Live music by Sineqube, the ambient music project of Kevin Holland and Jennifer Dutiel will set the soundscape for the evening. Together, they create original improvised music by orchestrating and layering vast timbral palettes of guitar and voice. Playing with the balance between the gentle, soothing bed of ambience and the uncharted frontiers of experimental music, they fuse elements of both to paint a live aural canvas that is exploratory, soothing and inviting.

Autism is a bio-neurological disability that impacts the development of the brain in areas of social interaction, communication and cognitive function. While it it is the fastest growing developmental disorder, autism remains largely underfunded. 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism. Although diagnoses can be made at age two, most children are not diagnosed until the age of four or even later in life. Children with autism do progress, but early intervention is key.
Restorative yoga is a practice of simply learning how to relax and be in the moment. With the use of blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps you will ease into a pose to restore and enjoy the task of doing nothing.
This four week series will have a different focus each week, and give you tools to take this practice with you.
