Brown Sugar is a yoga and mindfulness practice for people of color, as well as a community in NYC.  We offer nurturing, flowing yoga classes 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 class 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.

Therapeutic Yoga


With Calia Marshall

At Third Root, Brooklyn

Therapeutic Yoga is a blend of restorative yoga, gentle yoga, breathwork, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques combined in such a way that makes it an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance. It is a particularly good practice for those recovering from or living with injury or illness. Sandwiched between potentially stressful holidays and end-of-year projects, come give yourself the gift of deep release. 

Class is limited to 18 people, so reserve your ticket now!
