What is Keys to Good Tenancy?
Family Promise and the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) jointly developed the Keys to Good Tenancy curriculum to provide families with the knowledge and skills to be good tenants. The curriculum prepares new renters for tenancy by addressing a broad spectrum of elements, including budgeting, leases, home repairs, maintenance, neighbor relations, renters’ rights and more.
THANKSGIVING TEMPERANCE TRIKONASANA (YOGA + BEER TASTING)
Our series, “Temperance Trikonasana” pairs beer with yoga and a cause and makes a special return this November to get your Thanksgiving off to a positive start. Jenny Arrington brings her “Rebel Human Way” class to the brewery from 11:00 am - 12:45 pm.
Once our bodies and minds are opened, we have a beer together and learn about Family Promise, our annual beneficiary of this special Temperance Trikonasana. Learn more and donate to Family Promise: https://www.familypromisechicagons.org/ “Rebel Humans can be made. With training, we can start pushing back against our internal norms that are keeping us stuck. We eventually can begin to push back against the external norms that are keeping our community and society stuck. This unique class uses movement, intense breath, mantra, relaxation, and meditation to build resilience, awareness, connection, and the ability to transcend self-limiting thoughts and behaviors. There is no performative wellness here. This is wellness in defense of a better future. Rebel Human Way trains you in skills that fall under the core competencies of a Rebel Human: resilience, equanimity, and transcendence. Each class is unique but follows a consistent structure that you can rest into: Tune-in. Warm-up. Mindful Movement. Sound Bath. Meditation.” - Jenny Arrington
