About the Event

The Black community has endured hundreds of years of racism white supremacy.

In 1619 the first enslaved Africans were brought to America. Since forcibly boarding slave ships on the coast of Africa, Black people have resisted and fought for freedom. The institution of slavery was created to build a country and an economy with free labor. In order to accomplish this the people that were enslaved were stripped from their humanity.

The trauma of slavery, black codes, chain gangs,  Jim Crow, lynchings, segregation, Civil Rights, redlining, mass incarceration has had devastating effects on us, our families and our communities.   We have not had the opportunity to begin the process to heal from the historical and generational trauma. During our Yin Yoga + Meditation session we will create an environment of healing.

Please  join us for this wonderful healing event. It is time we celebrate who we are and be proud of the lineage and our resiliency.

What is Yin Yoga?

While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.

The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we’re opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely.

"A yin yoga sequence has a very similar effect on our energies as an acupuncture treatment," yin yoga instructor Stefanie Arend previously tells mbg. By holding the various poses, a yin yoga sequence can help restore the healthy flow of Qi in our bodies.

Here, the goal isn’t to move through postures freely--postures could be held for three to five minutes, or even 20 minutes at a time. A yin practitioner is trying to access the deeper tissues, and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (such as the hips, sacrum, and spine, to name a few).
