Taught by Jamiliah Bradshaw
With an aim to be welcoming to each practitioner, classes may incorporate chairs, blocks, and straps as props to aid us in fully experiencing ourselves in each and every movement. Great for all practice levels and all who come with a beginner's mind. Each class includes meditation and Thai massage. Through mindful movement, we connect with our deepest yes, watchful over any complicity in suffering and oppression, staying present to the preciousness of each moment, each breath, and our very lives.
About the teacher: Jamilah Bradshaw is an Oakland native, graduate of Niroga Institute's Integral Health Fellowship, and a certified massage therapist. She practices Raja yoga, the Buddha-Dharma, and honors traditions of the African Diaspora and Indigenous Americas. She is also an artist-strategist, on the Board of the East Bay Meditation Center, and a member of the Black Women Birthing Justice Collective.
