Mother and creative from Atlanta, Tie champions mindfulness and representation within her community.
"I used to have a lot of negative patterns and negative ways of thinking about myself, my life, and the world, and I think yoga is what caused a shift to happen. First on the mat, and then noticing how I was able to be more patient, more balanced, and more strong in my own self."
Based in New Mexico, Avery celebrates and empowers the queer community in her yoga classes.
Founder of Naaya in NY, Sinikiwe has created a yoga space for people of color to feel seen and welcome.
Abi founded Supply Yoga in London, a nurturing community helping people find a quieter mind.
"Mostly the impact I see is that people’s minds are changed about what yoga is and whether or not it’s for them."
