Yogabliss is a community yoga studio located in the heart of downtown Mercer Island. The studio is offering a special class for People of Color every Thursday at 4:30pm starting from November 12th, 2020. This class is intended as a safe and comfortable space for people of color to learn, practice, feel, and heal – whether you have any experience with yoga, or not. The intention is to create a space for an experience.
This practice is not just physical; people of color have different experiences than White people and are going through very different stressors. Because of this, meditation for Black people should be approached and led differently. Trauma is instilled in many Black people, deep-down, whether or not they realize it. This is a special space for understanding, healing, and connecting through breath, meditation, and movement.
Class will begin with a brief discussion check in to set the tone for practice. Students will be guided to settle into meditation and breath-work, working up to slow and mindful yoga movement to include flow and stretching. The practice will close with brief meditation and rest in savasana. Throughout class enjoy the soulful sounds of some good, fun music!
Thursdays @4:30-5:35pm (beginning November 12th)
The 8 Limbs Yoga Centers are located in Capitol Hill, Wedgwood, Phinney Ridge, and West Seattle. They offer a space for solidarity and healing for those identifying as persons of color to improve their physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing every Thursday at 5:30. The Centers recognize that healing take many forms. The intention of the Yoga for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color class is for BIPOC folks to practice together, to strengthen, release and expand.
The Yoga for BIPOC class is an entry point for BIPOC folks new to yoga, as well as a means for BIPOC with yoga experience to continue to evolve their practice; all levels are welcome.
Presented in partnership with Àṣẹ Asana. Proceeds for this class will go to Real Rent Duwamish.
