DanceMandala

Join us for a DANCEmandala class with Alizeh Valjee on Saturday, March 2 between 10:30 am – 11:45 am here, at The Yoga Well!

DANCEmandala is a free form of moving as a meditation practice that facilitates healing through your own unique movement. It “invites every inch of the body to awaken, release through movement and then find peace through stillness.”

This class is an opportunity for participants to explore the various movements of DANCEmandala with the support of breath and music.

Alizeh’s approach to Yoga and Meditation derives from holistic wellbeing. For her, the breath is the most vital part of practice. She believes that “it is via the breath that we reach the inaccessible parts of our bodies to open up and remove tension.” It is through the breath that we shift our nervous system to a place of relaxation and restoration. It is with the breath that we come into a state of inward focus and calm.”

In order to sign up, please TEXT on 03002454505 and we’ll give you a call back.
The drop in session is for 1200 Rs, otherwise all other class passes and unlimited offers can also be used.

Puff Puff Pak: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Catch the Karachi premiere of documentary ‘Puff Puff Pak’ at T2F, followed by a panel discussion about the film, and smoking as a gendered practice in Pakistan. The panel will feature the film’s director Fahad Naveed, and Sadia Khatri (Feminist, Founder ‘Girls at Dhabas’) and Samya Arif (Feminist, Artist and Illustrator). Jahanzeb Hussain (Editor, Prism at Dawn.com) will be moderating.

‘Puff Puff Pak’ follows filmmaker Fahad Naveed’s journey towards a smoke-free life. After quitting cigarettes in New York, the former chainsmoker returns home to Karachi, where smoking is still tied to masculinity, feminists are lighting cigarettes to fight the patriarchy, and his mother is battling cancer. Kicking the habit in New York is one thing, but will he be able to stay off cigarettes back in Pakistan?

‘Puff Puff Pak’ premiered at the NYU News Doc Film Festival 2019.
