Women & Trans Yoga featured and NYC Instructor Sasha mentioned in MadameNoire Blog
Empress Varnado is writing a blog series for Madame Noire titled “31 Days of Sensuality”. The mission of this project to empower Black and Brown women to take a moment everyday to simply enjoy learning new ways to live and love their beautiful bodies under their own agency. Her first post is about our monthly NYC Women and Trans Yoga class, and one of our FABULOUS instructors, Sasha, was mentioned! We are SO proud to have her on the team!
Empress wrote - “Naked Yoga allows you to embrace the sensations of the poses in a way you can’t due to restrictions posed by sports bras and tights. You are, instead, invited to notice your inhibitions and find more trust, while healing your own self-image and letting go of the images others may hold of yours and the image you may hold of other bodies.” That is exactly part of the Naked in Motion mission!
