HEALING JUSTICE THROUGH ACCESSIBLE BREATHWORK, YOGA, AND MORE
Three words: “I Can’t Breathe” link the deaths of a far too grievous number of Black people both in the United States and across the world due to violent encounters with state agents including the police. Further, in the midst of a COVID-19 global pandemic to which Black communities, Black Children, Black Breath has been proven more vulnerable, these three words, “I Can’t Breathe,” take on deeper urgent, and far-reaching resonance. Amidst such urgency, Breath & Body Alive was founded to affirm the significance and sanctity of Black lives, of Black Bodies, of Black Breath.
Rather than acquiesce to the repression of Black breath across history, Breath & Body Alive affirms life, supports healing, and cultivates collective recovery by making breathwork, yoga, and other healing justice modalities accessible to individuals and communities that have historically been marginalized within health and wellness industries.
