Yoga for Women of Color

Third Sundays, 2:00-3:15pm

***Please note April’s class has been rescheduled for Sunday, April 23rd from 2:00-3:15pm. Shankari Bowmaster will be subbing for Eboni Bugg this month. Thank you!***


A monthly offering where women of color can gather and practice yoga in a safe and nurturing setting.  Each class will include postures accessible to all levels as well as time for exploring ways to use breath and meditation for wellbeing. Women are invited to stay after class to connect with other participants, share yoga resources and build community. Each class is offered on a donation basis, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay. No pre-registration is necessary; this is a drop-in friendly class.

This class is offered by The Women’s Initiative and Common Ground Healing Arts, and taught by Eboni Bugg, a Therapist and Community Programs Director at The Women’s Initiative. Class will take place at Common Ground Healing Arts (directions).
