A yoga and dance class for folks of color and their allies.
In this JourneyDanceTM/Brown Sugar Mash-up,
we invite people of color and their allies to move, breathe and circle together as we celebrate our diverse community. We will explore yoga postures with awareness, healthy alignment, and a focus on the breath, as we begin to attune to our own and our collective wisdom. In the JourneyDance™ practice, we blend together improv theater and freestyle dance, with myo-fascial and emotional release. In this practice we celebrate, heal and feel to process and deal with stress, frustration, anger, grieve loss, transforming those emotions and feelings to experience radical self love and boldly embody and express our natural POWER and share our authentic JOY. We dance love of self first and we connect that love to others sending that power out into the world creating a healing ripple effect…enabling us to deal with the challenges we face in life from the inside out. Open your Heart and set your SOUL FREE!
Why is it necessary to have sacred space for people of color?
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!
