UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

Brown Sugar is a yoga and mindfulness practice for people of color, as well as a community in NYC.  We offer nurturing, flowing yoga workshops to help people of color connect deeply to ourselves and others, learn tools for reducing stress and trauma, and build resilience and joy. The magic of this class is created by the energy of each person who enters this sacred space.  Each practice begins and ends in a circle where everyone is invited to share and reflect. We always work with an intentional theme - and never close without enjoying some delicious chocolate together.  All of our offerings are sliding scale with no one turned away for lack of funds.

May Day Practice-

Yoga & Feldenkrais

05.01.21

With Belinda He & Calia Marshall

Via Zoom

On this International Workers’ Day, we invite BIPOC folks to join us for a rejuvenating practice bringing together Yoga and the Feldenkrais Method. Sharing a belief that creating spaciousness in your day, in your practice, in your life, is a luxury AND a necessity, we offer this time to cultivate a knowing of how attentive, intentional movement and rest can be a powerful tool for accessing resilience and power. As we honor the labor of BIPOC folks, we also come together as a community to honor the working class folks whose spearheading of the labor movement have brought to bear what our work-days look like today.
