Yin/Yang Yoga is a class that balances the body’s energy. This class can starts with an energizing and uplifting practice for around 30 minutes. It is then followed by deep, introspective, and quiet yoga that allows you to unwind and begin to prepare for a restful night’s sleep. This class is heated. | Photo by Taylor Jones Photo

Yin/Yang | Rae’s Yoga & Cycle Studio

Sundays | 7-8:15 PM

Hatha is two words, Ha meaning sun and Tha meaning moon. This practice will balance your body through a sequence of asanas designed to align your skin, muscle and bone. Open the many channels of the body especially the spin so energy can flow freely. Hatha yoga is a path towards creating balance and uniting opposites. Learn to balance your effort and surrender in each pose. Bring attention to your breath, still the mind, and be more present with this powerful tool for self transformation.

Yoga and meditation are becoming increasingly popular tools for self-care in today’s modern world. In fact, the number of Americans practicing yoga grew by 50 percent between 2012-2016. Meditation and mindfulness-based programs are also becoming more mainstream with the proliferation of apps and wellness programs in the workplace.

However, yoga is often not accessible to WoC. Yoga studios can become quite expensive with drop-in classes ranging from $15-$25. On top of that, many yoga spaces are not particularly inviting to WoC. Most yoga studio owners and teachers are white, thin, athletic or able-bodied folks and end up attracting the same kinds of students.

Meanwhile, yoga and meditation are eastern practices that originated in India. What started as a deeply spiritual and personal practice has turned into a multi billion-dollar industry that encourages us to spend on classes, gear, clothes, and more.

Where does this leave WoC who could benefit from such a practice? And how do we practice yoga and meditation with the tension of it being offered to us as a commodified practice? What is yoga, anyway? Hint: It’s not the poses. And what is the point of meditation?

We will explore these questions at C + C and do a chair yoga and meditation practice.

If you wish to participate, wearing comfortable pants is recommended.

Networking encouraged!

This is a FREE event, we just please ask that you spend minimum of $15 to support our local PoC business!
