Description

Restorative Yoga to support healing from Race-Based Stress. Dedicate an afternoon of radical self-care for your body, mind, soul and spirit.

 

“Radical self-care is the active decision to put your wellness before anyone or anything else”  Audre Lorde -

 

About Amani Yoga: 

The name AMANI Yoga means peace in Swahili & best wishes in Arabic

Amani Yoga came out of a desire to create a culturally inclusive yoga space so that BIWOC feel a  sense of belonging.

Many studies show that BIWOC experiencing racism and discrimination may have an increased risk of developing health concerns,  yoga and breath work will not solve racism, but it has shown positive results in managing stress and contributing to healing and wellbeing. 

This offering will include 

  • A safe space for BIWOC
  • A restorative yoga practice- providing deep rest ,a practice which you can take away and practice daily (all postures are accessible to all bodies and all levels of experience, especially beginners)
  • Yoga Nidra for rest, clarity and direction
  • An exploration of how racial stress impacts our body’s nervous system and how yoga can relax the nervous system in a safe nurturing setting
  • Take away self-care tools
