In response to recent murders of Black people by the police, and to the continuous state-sanctioned violence Black people experience across the United States, Yoga for Black lives was created to support resistance to this kind of violence by giving people the opportunity to take part in a life-sustaining practice. Sessions will include yoga asanas (poses), breath work and meditation. We’ll celebrate the lives of those in the room, as well as those who have lost their lives at the hands of the state. No previous experience with yoga is necessary. Session will be led by YBL Founder & Instructor Stephanie Hicks and will take place on the catwalk.
Cost of attendance is $20 per person. All proceeds will be given to organizations in Chicago resisting state violence.
