The Center for Religion and Spirituality invites you to this online Yoga, Mindfulness and Social Change workshop with author and yogi Changa Bell.

Yoga builds inner awareness and connects the mind-body. Yoga can be critical to changing a POC's (Person of Color) locus of control. In recent years, Changa Bell fostered a movement, The Black Male Yoga Initiative. BMYI supports black men and boys via its LifeForce™ Development Program, which incorporates yoga, life-coaching, meditation, and mindfulness to assist Black men and boys. It is from this holistic platform that people of color can find a rich history of health and access to a vibrant identity, which we will explore in this online workshop.
