Afro Flow Yoga in Charlottesville

Greetings AfroFlowYoga fam, new & old!

Afro Flow Yoga session series @ Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Charlottesville (UCCC)!! Aaaaaand we *will* have live drumming

Please register at this link — even if you registered for previous series. It is still free, though donations are welcome online or at our sessions. Feel free to invite other interested friends & family 🙂 

For those who will be joining us for the first time: 

  • This is a FREE /donation optional offering because I’m in my certification process 🙂
  • Feel free bring something to put on the altar, if you’d like (you’ll take it home after)
  • You’re welcome to arrive early (5:30) so we are ready to begin at 6
  • If you think you’ll be running late, please text me before 6:00, and I’ll lay a mat out for you 🙂
  • Invite friends! Afro Flow Yoga is a practice of non-judgment for EVERYONE – newcomers to yoga, dances of the African diaspora, and those in need of modifications are welcome!
  • Enter the building on the Fendall Ave entrance, then take the stairs down to the lower level. (They are right behind the staircase which leads upstairs, which you’ll see when you enter on Fendall Ave)

FYI our other sessions at UUCC 

will be weekly on Mondays through the Spring, except for March 18th and unless otherwise noted. 
I am also hoping to lead some Flows in Fluvanna (where I live), at Twin Oaks and have started conversations with some other great folks. Please let me know if you’d like to bring Afro Flow Yoga to your community, organization, etc, and I will be sure to loop in Afro Flow Yoga co-founder, Leslie Salmon Jones

Take care & looking forward to Flowing with y’all soon!

I acknowledge that I currently live on the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary unceded lands of the Monacan Nation. I am committed to recognizing, supporting, and advocating for the continued sovereignty of the Indigenous Nations in whose traditional territories I live.

“Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.” &“Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.” – James Baldwin
“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” – Arundhati Roy
The impossible is becoming possible. As we all stand in the midst of a world crisis, those of us who can dream must dream. And after we dream, we must demand and act. – Dr. Bettina Love
