Afro-Flow Yoga

In the same spirit of VT’s Ut Prosim, this yoga class will focus on the Karmic path, which is “yoga of action in service to others.” This class offers movement based on yoga asanas infused with African Dance rhythm and styles that include creative and relaxing movements encouraging self-exploration and promoting self-discipline. Practitioners can expect restorative and warming yoga that is both challenging and relaxing, resulting in holistic benefits such as: building self-awareness, helping with fatigue, promoting balance, building strength, and reinforcing better breathing. There will be music to help transcend your awareness in unity of mind, and body through a shared experience in celebration of Black History Month. Ultimately the goal is to leave refreshed and motivated in your body by bringing together a variation of traditional Eastern practice and West African inspired movement.

  • McComas Hall's Group Ex Studio B
  • 2:30 PM
  • First come first served for the first 50 participants
  • No group ex pass is required to participate
  • Special thanks to our partners: Black Cultural Center
