As a yoga teacher, I recognize systemic and institutional racism and acknowledge, as a white woman, my business has benefitted from it. I hear the pain of black Americans, and I will listen and learn and work to be better, knowing the work will be ongoing. On the first Sunday of every month, I will offer a family friendly class to raise money for organizations fighting for social justice. Only one donation per family is necessary. This month, all proceeds will benefit Austin Justice Coalition. Social justice begins within, and we can use the work on our mats to both recognize our own darkness and find the light to help us move forward and fight for justice for our black brothers and sisters and fellow Americans. Black. Lives. Matter.
The class will take place via Zoom on Sunday, October 4th at 11am. To join, go to www.violetcrownyoga.com/zoom
