Summer 2023 at Movement Matters Collective was a whirlwind of activity indoors and out! We had a variety of events and collaborations that kept us moving and feeling. Here is a recap of some of the highlights:
MMC Wellness Series: We launched our MMC Wellness Series in June, and it was a huge success! We offered a variety of classes and workshops on topics such as yoga, meditation, Pilates, and nutrition. We also had a few special events, such as a sound bath and a women's circle. The MMC Wellness Series was a great way for our community to come together and learn new ways to care for their physical and mental health.
Thank you to all the activity facilitators, Sip Wine + Beer, and the Somali Community of San Diego.
Brian & I Made it Official: We are thrilled to announce that Brian and I married on June 29th! It was a beautiful day, and we are so grateful to our family and friends for their love and support.
Juneteenth: We recognized Juneteenth with a series of impactful community partnerships to honor the magnitude of this significant holiday to the Black Community.
We partnered with Paddle for Peace to lead a gentle Yoga flow at their Juneteenth Celebration at La Jolla before their group surf session. It was an honor to be part of their mission to help diversify the shore.
Day of Restoration: MMC Founder was invited to present and lead a restorative flow at Juneteenth Day of Restoration at the Escondido Center for the Performing Arts. It was a beautiful day of community, education, and important conversations presented in partnership with Sip Wine and Beer.
FBE Juneteenth 5K Sponsor: We were proud to sponsor this year’s annual Juneteenth 5K produced and led by Fit Black and Educated.
Zumba Comes to MMC: We introduced Zumba to MMC with a dance party led by Precious Mizell. Zumba is a fun and energetic way to get moving. It is a privilege to have Precious join our community and share her gift.
SD Black Birth Workers Collective: We partnered with the San Diego Black Birth Workers Collective to celebrate Black Birth Joy. Black birth workers were pampered, fed, and nurtured in an afternoon of bliss.
