Dear Yoga Community,

Join me for my weekly virtual yoga class, Friday Afternoon Vinyasa Flow Yoga Practice.

Thank your for asking me to show up online, and supporting the work that I do. I would also love to support you in your practice and on your journey of life through this challenging moment. While many teachers have been working virtually for a while, this is a new format for me, as someone who just delights in the experience of sharing our practice energy together in a physical space!

That being said, a live streaming class can be more like a real class than you might expect. In this new phase of life, our virtual sessions allow us to come together, see each other, and connect in the space of practice.

I’m grateful for the technology that makes it possible for us to do this! Thanks for your patience with me as I iron out the online experience.

SUMMER CLEANSE FOR BLACK MEN (Online, 4-week series) ​
Aug 15 all-day
SUMMER CLEANSE FOR BLACK MEN  (Online, 4-week series)  ​

The age-old practice of cleansing is important to staying healthy and in alignment with the seasons!

Now, more than ever, in these unsteady and surreal times, it is critical that we boost our immune systems as a preventive measure to resisting and throwing off substances that are foreign to our bodies.

With four months deep into the pandemic, many of us are still needing to find and sync our internal rhythm with the strength from which we come—nature!

Summer is nature’s time to shine and vibrate at its highest potential, radiating its best and brightest colors and creations while offering us a grand opportunity to do the same.

Marked by illumination, summer calls forth the power of the heart and its capacity to carry heat, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body along withthe wisdom of the small intestine, responsible for the optimal digestion and assimilation of our nutrients.

How do you use your power to shine your light?

This cleanse is designed for Black Men seeking professional guidance in conjunction with the support of community along the way. You will be introduced to a family of heart-fortifying herbs along with specific foods and practices that will support your detoxification pathways for a gentle clearing from the inside out. You will also walk away with firsthand experience and knowledge on the cornerstones of a productive cleanse.

The beauty of this cleanse is in the cultivation of a deeper relationship with self in tandem to walking this healing path with others and becoming more well resourced while being professionally guided.

Other benefits include, yet are not limited to, eating nourishing foods that satiate your entire being without sacrificing taste. (Note: This IS a cleanse, NOT a fast!!!)

* This is an online, 4-week series

* Cleansing packages will be mailed to those who participate

* PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE (Please ask if needed!)

Intro to DSA
Aug 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Democratic Socialist politicians like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib are raising the expectations of millions of people across the United States and bringing them into a political awakening. The membership of DSA, the largest socialist organization in the United States, is rapidly growing by the thousands. Millions of everyday people are calling for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, universal rent control, and more.
But what is democratic socialism? What does it mean to be a member of DSA? And how do socialists look at the crises of police brutality, economic recession, and COVID-19?
Let’s talk about it.

We will learn together:

Dear Yoga Community,

Join me for my weekly virtual yoga class, Wednesday Morning Yoga Practice.

Thank your for asking me to show up online, and supporting the work that I do. I would also love to support you in your practice and on your journey of life through this challenging moment. While many teachers have been working virtually for a while, this is a new format for me, as someone who just delights in the experience of sharing our practice energy together in a physical space!

That being said, a live streaming class can be more like a real class than you might expect. In this new phase of life, our virtual sessions allow us to come together, see each other, and connect in the space of practice.

I’m grateful for the technology that makes it possible for us to do this! Thanks for your patience with me as I iron out the online experience.
