Words cannot express how grateful we are to serve you in this capacity. You selected Sankofa Yoga and Wellness Center as your cOMmunity of choice and to share this blessed art of yoga with you means the world to us. Working arduously to combine yoga and mindfulness to promote self-care and coping strategies to underrepresented populations affirms my work as an educator, community organizer and holistic health practitioner. Your time as a member is an amazing journey in which we will embark together.
I found yoga at a time when years as a community organizer had taken a toll on my well-being. After years of visiting neurologists, massage therapists, and chiropractors to ease migraines and tension headaches, stress and anxiety had gotten the best of me. It was time to make a conscious change. After short stints of practicing on and off years prior, in 2011 I was recommended to practice yoga consistently, and it completely transformed my life.
I immediately fell in love with yoga’s ability to relieve stress, promote mental clarity, and empower my body. The practice not only grounded me, but also complimented my marathon training and weight training routines. It was then that I realized that I wanted to deepen my practice and help spread yogic good on and off the mat. I enrolled in my first yoga teacher training program in 2012 and quickly I learned that asana was not even the half of this beautiful practice. As a scholar and seeker, the ethical principles allowed me to fully understand and embrace yoga as a powerful tool to stay connected.
In July 2019, my husband, Marcus, and I opened Sankofa Yoga and Wellness Center seeking to create more spaces to foster community, relationships, healing and wellness. In November 2020 we opened Sankofa Health Center to further it's cause and foster inclusivity and diversity in community health. Sankofa essentially means to return to the source, and it is our intention to cultivate the healing space and learning environment that allows you to do just that.
I pray that this membership experience meets your expectations and that your yoga practice grows as a result of our time together.
We've created a special time monthly on Saturday mornings for studio members to have a place to relax. Held at our upstairs studio, Niyama, studio members can hang out before or in-between classes and enjoy, tea, snacks, fellowship, and good music... and as an additional treat, guided meditation and/or sound bath! Stop by for a quick snack, meet-up with classmates you haven't seen in a while, or pull up a cushion and just chill in peace. See you on Saturdays at the Member's Lounge!
