A yoga session will take place at the National Museum of African American History and Culture to support the Black Lives Matter movement on Sunday, October 4.
The event series that includes following sessions on October 11, 18 and 25 is presented by Rachel Baylor, founder of Evolving Lives Body and Mind, a DMV area yoga business.
The 60-minute Power Vinyasa-style class focuses on traditional yoga postures with a longer hold in foundational/grounding poses to support safety and alignment.
It promises to help you connect your breath to your physical movement and build internal heat with your breath while enjoying the challenge and intensity of flowing through class at a slower pace.
“The violent acts of hatred are the result of long standing and systematic racism. There is no quick solution to the complex problems we face, however, we can collectively join in a peaceful yoga session to tune in to the present moment and listen to our inner voice, the one guiding us to, ‘be the change we wish to seek in the world,’ to activate against these challenges and affect change,” the event brief says.
Proceeds from the October 4 event will be donated to the Black Lives Matter movement.
