As a yoga teacher and wellness practitioner of colour, my teachings and practices are rooted in a trauma informed, anti-oppressive framework. Being only one of two BIPOC graduates in my Yoga Teacher Training, and most often the only black yoga teacher on faculty at the majority of the yoga studios I teach at, I continue to advocate for inclusivity and accessibility in the yoga and wellness community.
Here are just a few Initiatives I have had the privilege in creating or contributing to:
The Villij - Yoga Teaching Faculty and Contractor (2018- Present)
The mission of The Villij is to help women of colour nurture their well-being through affirming wellness education, experiences and support.
Brown Girls Yoga - Faculty Member
Brown Girls Yoga offers free yoga classes in Toronto to self-identified people of colour, promoting body positive consciousness.
889 Community Movement and Meaning Fundraiser, Nia Center for the Arts - Teacher
A 100% donation based class, all proceeds collected were donated to support the NIA Centre for the Arts, a Toronto-based charitable organization that supports, showcases and promotes an appreciation of arts from across the Afro-Diaspora. Nia Centre is committed to supporting artists working across disciplines, and ranging in experience levels.
Nest Yoga + Massage - Diversity and Inclusion Training - Host and Consultant
Bridging my experience in BIPOC community development and anti-racism work, I offered consulting and resources in order to effectively build and implement a cohesive diversity and inclusion strategy.
