Collective Colours began as a thought - a desire - for a more deeply rooted connection with the yogic world. In the Western world, through social media, we often idealize the typical “yogi” of today: she is hyper flexible, has +10K followers, and is blonde.
Yoga can often feel un-relatable, un-achievable, and unrealistic when you don’t resonate with who you see in the media practising yoga.
Coming from mixed Jamaican backgrounds instantly connected Cheyenne and Amy. It was, after all, bizarre to meet a sister deep in the jungle of Nicaragua at a yoga ashram - of all the places.
Recognizing the rarity of this unusual encounter with someone of similar decent felt… sad. We knew there must be other women who are as intrigued with the yogic path, yet alienated by the “norm”.
This is the first of many Collective Colours workshops - through which we aspire to create community for visible minorities to share, learn, grow, and inspire one another through yogic and holistic practices.
This workshop will focus on Radical Self-Love; embracing and nurturing ourselves entirely (the good, the bad, and the ugly.)
As women we tend to be caregivers - nurturers - and often fail to receive. What if in order to give more freely, we must first learn to receive? What if in order to be our best selves, we must first let go of self-set expectations and accept ourselves?
Come enjoy feminine energy, engaging discussion and a juicy yoga class with your sisters.
