Books + Yoga

A book club featuring authors and artists of color.

Reading is how we educate ourselves beyond our own worlds. Yoga is a tool to learn more about one’s self. Books + Yoga combines the two to promote a healed self and empowered community.
We believe finances should never be a barrier to self-work, therefore each session will be offered with sliding scale pricing and an option to borrow books.

Join Us!

We will be discussing Angela Davis’ “Are Prisons Obsolete?" Sunday, July 26th at 11:30a EST. Tickets can be purchased HERE
