    Event description

    AMANI YOGA: Nervous System Reset: for BIWOC

    Slow down in this 90 minute class designed to carve out time for
    rest. We will begin with gentle movement to prepare the body for
    restorative poses that will encourage your nervous system to dip into
    its parasympathetic state, cultivating the opposite of stress.

    The name AMANI YOGA means peace in Swahili & best wishes in Arabic

    Reflections - 2023

    " My first yoga experience with AMANI YOGA as a Black woman was unforgettable. Maria creates a secure and supportive environment that allows me to connect with my body, spirit, and mind. A sacred space to decrease racial stress, practice self-care, and foster a sense of community and sisterhood. I am incredibly grateful to Maria Osman for providing this opportunity to Sisters Healing Space, and I eagerly anticipate future sessions"

    AMANI YOGA came out of a desire to create an culturally inclusive yoga space for BIWOC to feel safe and have a sense of belonging and experience how yoga can contribute to racial stress healing and well-being.

    This offering includes

    • A restorative yoga practice- providing deep rest, a practice which you can take away and practice daily (all postures are accessible to all bodies and all levels of experience, especially beginners)
    • An exploration of how racial stress impacts our body’s nervous system and how yoga can relax the nervous system in a safe nurturing setting.

        Please arrive by 2:50 pm
