The Word of the Year is…

Stretch it out with Yoga, Sign up for our Winter Intensives, and Spread Joy with us!

Each year, our teaching artists meet to brainstorm a word of the year. Back in August, they settled on “JOY.” As we enter 2024, we wanted to bring attention to this word. We want to hear from you! What’s something that brings you joy? Is it walking your dog? Spending time with family? Dancing at Pulse? Write it down on the big piece of paper in the hallway, and join us in having the most joyous year ever!
