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 no one turned away for lack of funds.
Heeding Ancestors Wisdom
With Calia Marshall
Our practice this month falls during the week after Halloween, Día de los Muertos and Election Day and just one week before Diwali. We don't know what the results of the Presidential election will be, but we can use this practice to support one another in our joys and/or fears, as well as to call on the wisdom of our ancestors. We can recommit to moving steadily toward knowledge, illumination, and goodness. Our journeys are supported and our ancestors have lit the way. We will gather, holding the wisdom of our ancestors, to continue moving ourselves and one another toward liberation.
*Please note that we are not able to provide childcare at this time. While children are not prohibited from attending, the content of these classes will be geared toward adults and teens. If your child attends the class with you, there is a lobby where you can go together if they need a break from the practice space.
