A yoga session will be held at the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Sunday October 4th to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
The series of events with the following sessions on October 11th, 18th and 25th will be presented by Rachel Baylor, Founder of Evolving Lives Body and Mind, a yoga company in the DMV space.
The 60-minute Power Vinyasa class focuses on traditional yoga postures with an extended hold in ground / grounding poses to aid security and alignment.
It promises to help you connect your breath with your physical movement and use your breath to build inner warmth as you enjoy the challenge and intensity of slowing your flow through class.
“The violent acts of hate are the result of years of systematic racism. There is no quick fix to the complex problems we face. However, we can participate in a peaceful yoga session together to tune in to the present moment and listen to our inner voice leading us to “be the change we want to seek in the world,” around it To face challenges and to bring about change ‘, it says in the event description.
Proceeds from the October 4th event will be donated to the Black Lives Matter movement.
