Transformation Yoga Offers Online Class “In Agreement”, Combining Anti-racism Work with Yoga and Meditation
Transformation Yoga opened its doors at 218 King Street, Suite C in Charleston on January 6, but founder Kennae Miller had been sharing wellness tools with the marginalized, underserved and underrepresented in the lowcountry for several years prior to the opening of the brick and mortar studio. Transformation Yoga continues to operate during this COVID-19 crisis, offering online classes for various community organizations (BEE Collective, AFFA, Mindful Mornings Charleston) and for Black and Indigenous people of color.
Their class “In Agreement” invites participants to begin their anti-racism work in combination with the use of yoga and meditation. The class is offered on a sliding scale basis and open to anyone interested in attending. There are still openings for the July 21-24 class.
Transformation Yoga has also partnered with Murrells Inlet social worker, Gabrielle Morton, to create the “Self-Preservation Fund”. Funded by donations, the ‘Self-Preservation Vent Sessions’ offer a healing safe space for Black men and women to receive mental health care and release any expression of emotion, grief, or distress in a confidential setting, without judgement of their cultural beliefs. The sessions have been available since December and are funded through September. The need for these sessions has been amplified after the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks and countless other victims of racism and police brutality.
