And, Land Acknowledgement is not the same thing as land back. We invite you to go beyond land acknowledgement and give a kuuy nahw’a (guest exchange*) to the Tongva-led land conservancy where land has rightfully returned to them for the first time since colonization.

Individuals and institutions can make a voluntary recurring contribution to support Tongva-led Land Back efforts acknowledging both relationships and reciprocity to lands and Native Peoples of Tovaangar — this place many of us now call home.

*Kuuy nahwá’a is the belief that when given a chance to affect history in a positive way, that a just human being would make the just move.

We are on Native land. We Still Move acknowledges the Gabrieleno/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and Southern Channel Islands). We pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.

We are on Native Land

We Still Move


Dance from the Heart is a healing movement practice that supports us in reconnecting to our own bodies and spirits.

In each class, we move through 7-energies inspired by the elements of nature to envision, ground, connect, release, replenish, embody, and affirm our visions for our life and world.

Release stress, unleash the restorative power of our creativity, and break free from the myth that we have to do it alone. Join us for healing arts and movement to reconnect with Mind, Body, Spirit, and each other and find your center in the lushness of the garden and celebrate Ancestral Wisdom.

Community Events

"I arrived at this event feeling overwhelmed and low after a difficult week.

After yoga, a sound bath, nourishing food, and the beautiful spirit of community you created, I left feeling refreshed and alive." ⁠

After taking this class, I have become a lot better at calming myself down, and reducing my anxiety.

I have learned so many tools to release trauma and pain."

- East LA Women Center Dance From the Heart Participant


I have attended on several occasions and always enjoy the practice and the excellent facilitation.

I especially appreciate that the practice can be adapted for disabled and limited mobility participants, and I never feel like a burden or am slowing anyone else down. Music is always on point.

I look forward to seeing you all again. Thank you very much!" ⁠
