So many of us are trying to prioritize our health and stay alive. We are living through the unknown, unfamiliar together. Please be compassionate with yourself and others journeying with you. The culture created in yoga spaces with Black people has to be affirming and accountable to caustic microaggressions. We should not have to bottle and absorb someone else’s carelessness for our lives and those lost while creating the space for restoration for everyone else. The burden is too heavy and not shared.
