(MIND)ful is a 6 week group that allows women of color to use the body and mind as healing elements through the practice of mindfulness and vulnerability.
Each group will begin with a prompt and lead into an hour discussion exploring womanhood and wellness.
After each discussion, members will be led in a gentle yoga flow that incorporates themes mentioned in discussion. The yoga flow will accommodate all levels and may be coupled with meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises).
Writing & Reading Exercises
Outside of group, attendees will be provided with mindfulness exercises that include journaling, reading, and breathing exercises to benefit their overall wellness.
Meet your group facilitator
Davia is a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher and licensed therapist based in Austin, TX. She has practiced yoga off and on since the age of 16. Yoga became more consistent in her life as she navigated secondary trauma and tried to create more balance in her life.
In September of 2017, she took the leap to become a certified yoga teacher with plans of using yoga to help women of color address mental health concerns, trauma, and create balanced lives through mindfulness practices.
