Yoga for People of Color Empowers a Community
Surprisingly, the concept of yoga classes targeted specifically at people of color is not new. Across the country, there are quite a few black-owned yoga studios and practicing professional yogis, who provide such classes. For instance, Maya BreuerÂ offers a yoga retreat for women of color. Leslie Salmon Jones, founder of Afro Flow Yoga,Â offers a creative fusion of yoga, the dances of the African Diaspora, and live music.Â Black Girl in Om, an online publication that promotes holistic wellness and inner beauty for women of color, also suggests similar resources.
