Elevate Life: Yoga, Mindfulness, Sound & Social Connections

May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Elevate Life is a four-part yoga and wellness series co-hosted with Jess Pfeffer of Jess Pfeffer Holistic Event Planning. Each Elevate Life session is designed to offer Oakland Cemetery as a place of healing, well-being, and social connections.

The series kicks off on May 16 at 6:30 p.m. with the first of four events: Restful Meditation + Grounding Breathwork for Mental Health with Marsha Shackelford.

Join Marsha Shackelford for a 90-minute session that includes gentle stretch, breathwork practices and meditation. The session begins with light movement to prepare for stillness, followed by breathing practices to get grounded in the midst of the world’s chaos, and close the experience with a restful meditation. Prepare to lean into “being” and less “doing”.

Marsha Shackelford believes yoga is for everybody and every body and created Rawr Yoga to help make the healing arts accessible and relatable to all humans, with an emphasis on BIPOC. She is a yoga teacher (EYT), pranayama, meditation and healing guide.

Members save $5 on registration. See your member emails for the promo code.

Plan to join us for our other sessions as well:

  • July 11: Social Well-being + Sound Bath
  • September 5: Restorative Yoga (Yoga Nidra)
  • November 14: Yoga (Asana) Postures + Community Potluck


The event takes place inside Oakland Cemetery. Follow the signs to the location. Bring a yoga mat and a water bottle. Restrooms provided.
