What: Brown Sugar is a healing space. It’s a space where people of color can move, breathe and circle together as we explore mindfulness practices and celebrate our diverse community.
How: We begin and end each class in a circle where we can share and reflect upon our experiences. As we move through the yoga postures with awareness, healthy alignment, and a focus on the breath, we begin to attune to our own and our collective wisdom.
Why: Because folks of color need a healing space where they don’t have to worry about being “othered”. Because racism exists, within the world and within the yoga community. Because people of color are hugely underrepresented in yoga studios, so we’re letting it be known that there’s a space there for us too.
Who: The magic of this class is created by the energy of each person who enters this sacred space. All experience levels, sizes, abilities, genders, and ages are welcome.
And: Chocolate will be served! At the end of practice enjoy some time for fellowship and Taza Chocolates.
