Yoga for the Living Ancestor

In this virtual class series for BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) only, we will ground down with Yin and meditation, and move with the breaths in slow flow yoga.  We will draw up love, wisdom and strength from our ancestors. By the end of this series we will be recharged to continue on as the living ancestors, as we educate our youth and fight for social justice.
