Yoga in a unique practice because it offers the space to discover strength in vulnerability, have compassion for short comings, and teaches us to see ourselves as worthy of love no matter what. It gives us grounding when our minds are dominated by thoughts and space to flow in a rhythm of movement where those same thoughts begin to disappear. It becomes a space of refuge from the craziness of both the outer and the inner world. It’s therapy…and with it comes so much healing…
My goal with Afro Yoga is to inspire all women of color to cultivate and integrate the power, strength, peace and wisdom that inevitably comes through a dedicated yoga practice.
In my efforts to reach out to an underrepresented and underserved community, I created Afro Yoga to become a movement for Women of Color in Sacramento. I must admit, at first I was hesitant about creating a class that specifically targets one group of people because I didn’t want anyone who doesn’t fit into this group to think that they are excluded. The idea is in fact, all the opposite. The whole reason for creating Afro Yoga is to create and inclusionary environment where all shades, shapes and sizes are welcome.
I believe that through the practice of yoga, Women of Color can bring back to their homes and communities a new source of strength that will uplift us all and inspire a new wave of consciousness. With this new consciousness of self-love, power, and strength the possibilities for what we can achieve off the mat become limitless.

Of course! Although this class is aimed at Women of Color, all shapes, shades and sizes are welcome. No one is excluded from this beautiful practice! This means MEN are also welcome!

Absolutely. This is a wonderful practice to introduce to your kids, however, it’s up to your own judgement to decide if your child would find enough interest to be engaged throughout the duration of the class.
