Turtle Disco is a community arts space in Ypsilanti, Michigan co-created by Petra Kuppers and Stephanie Heit to cultivate creative self-care, communal inquiry, connection, and awareness. Turtle Disco offerings include salons, readings, somatic writing, movement, Olimpias workshops, Kundalini yoga, and more. We are dedicated to providing a welcome and supportive environment, grounded in a disability culture framework. Stay tuned for the official Turtle Disco dance and logo.
Upcoming Class at Turtle Disco Satellite Space:
Moving Words: A Contemplative Practice with Stephanie Heit
In this six week series, we will create a laboratory of delight: move together and apart in improvisational play, awaken the senses through freewrites, witness the breath in meditation, tend to self and community. Take a mini-retreat with this practice in the beautiful environs of The Living Yoga Yurt to cultivate creative self-care and inquiry.
No experience necessary, all bodyminds welcome, disability culture friendly. Bring writing/art materials you desire (journal, pen, colored pencils, etc.). Dress in layers to support movement, stillness and fluctuating yurt temperatures. Blankets and bolsters available.
