Join the Well Being Collective @ Hart House for additional spaces of rest during Black History Month. Rest is resistance.


In celebration of Black History Month the Well Being Collective @ Hart House will be offering rest time and space on Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:10 - 4 pm in Studio A in the Hart House Fitness Centre.

Every Wednesday: Rest Space Activation

  • We invite you to take time for yourself on Well Being Wednesdays. Gather in the Rest Space for self-guided meditation practices that will explore various themes of rest through affirmation, strength, resilience, Black love and vibrational energy throughout February. 
  • Drop in whenever you like and stay as long as you need. Mats and reclining chairs are set up to create a comfortable space. Expect dim lighting, salt lamps, candles, soothing meditations, nature sounds, aromatherapy and/or visual displays. 

Every Friday: Guided Movement 

  • Join us on Freedom Fridays for guided movement sessions with Black wellness practitioners. These sessions expand on Wednesday’s wellness themes. Participants will be guided through a variety of movements to help achieve a state of rest. Participants can expect the following practices: sound bath, meditation, journaling, restorative yoga and restorative Pilates.

Tap into the power of rest this February with the Well Being Collective @ Hart House. Rest is Resistance.
