Whether you’re interested in beginners to rigorous yoga, The Zen Dragonfly and Embody YOGA offer a variety of classes for all levels on the 2nd floor of the Walnut Way Center. This is our next step forward to revitalize the Lindsay Heights neighborhood, to improve individual health and strengthen a culture of wellness.
The Healing Circle is offered twice a month on Friday nights. It was created as a safe space for women of color to gain skills in self-care. The program uses meditation, relaxation, breathing techniques, essential oils, integrative medicine, energy balance, movement, and more to face life's challenges.
Each growing season (April-October), we welcome adult groups to the Walnut Way Campus to participate in an informative tour and impactful volunteer activities in the gardens. We also accept volunteers at special events such as the annual September Harvest Day street festival.
We offer free public tours and paid adult tours April-October (pre-registration required). Our tours are neighborhood-based learning opportunities for residents and visitors highlighting our commitment to civic engagement, environmental stewardship, and creating venues for prosperity.
The Walnut Way Center is an active neighborhood resource. Neighbors gather at Neighbor Night events, community meetings, and men’s and women’s groups. It serves to provide space for civic engagement and social networking which we know leads to more stable communities.
Neighborhood Collaboration has brought together residents, businesses, non-profits, and stakeholders to create a vision of what Lindsay Heights can be, working deliberately and systematically to "connect the dots," to revitalize our community for the benefit of all our neighbors.
Men from Lindsay Heights and nearby meet regularly to support and strengthen the network of African American fathers and men. We are looking for committed men to join this powerful fellowship circle. A real movement that is championed for men by men!
