studio BE is pleased to offer a variety of yoga and meditation practices to help calm your nerves and soothe your spirit during this unprecedented time.

Join Rachel for this all-levels flow inspired by Buddhist teachings on interdependence. We'll move through a spirited, athletic flow featuring standing balancing poses, heart-openers and some creative hamstring stretches (like Krounchasana) before closing with a seated meditation.

The Black mindfulness teachers and authors Rachel recommends here are Ruth King and Spring Washam. Robin DiAngelo's book White Fragility is the other resource mentioned.

As always: let your breath drive your practice, feel free to modify (especially if you're pregnant, recovering from an injury, or new to yoga), skip vinyasas for a more mellow practice, and turn on some gentle background tunes.

Most importantly, remember to be gentle with yourself — and don't take yourself (or your yoga practice) too seriously.
