This class has been thoughtfully created by humans of color for humans of color. Our intention is to provide a safe space for those who identify as a person of color to come together to move, learn, talk, and create community with other humans like themselves. This will also be a gathering place for connecting and building communities of color.
We hope to create support for each other and share our experiences of being in this world with one another. This class will include an opening circle that provides time for each person to introduce themselves, mindful movement and breathing, and a look into the history and different brances of yoga. We will also address issues that people of color are facing in our current social climate using yoga as platform for release and restructuring.
Humans of Color Yoga will start at People’s on Saturday October 8th, and then be held every other week in the Community Room.
