El Movimiento Book Presentation

This book is filled with movement exercises and brief biographies of the workshop facilitators who led them throughout 2019.. It is a love letter to the body, the women who led us in practices to connect to it, and the place where the workshops took place. The presentation of the book was hosted by La Señora which is also where the physical copy of the book can be found. A digital copy can be found here. Thank you to all who participated.

All photos were taken by Lizette Flores and members of the public.
