Ep. 16 – Can Race, Religion & Appropriation Coexist with Yoga & Meditation? w/ Selena Brown, M.A., M.Ed., RYT

Intersections between race, religion, & appropriation in modern yoga

In this episode, we have a very special guest, Selena Brown, owner of Pramana Wellness, who is an amazing guide specializing in yoga, meditation, coaching, counseling, and psychotherapy.

We’re diving really deep into discussions about how we can incorporate yoga & meditation practices into our lives while still holding space for our religious beliefs.

We touch on the growing number of African Americans beginning to embrace yoga & meditation practices and the appropriation of yoga and other movement forms.

Lastly, Selena has the greatest advice we’ve heard thus far to help you begin a mindful meditation practice today and much more!

And of course, first, as always, we’ll “go within” and have our 5-minute Focused Shift, gratitude meditation which includes a 432hz pure tone and a heartbeat in the background.
