Our 530 sq. ft. yoga studio feels like home because it is a place to call home for so many underrepresented individuals seeking wellness. With over 200+ donors we were able to raise $20,000 on our GoFundMe campaign to renovate our Inglenook Yoga space. We opened our doors for the very first time November 21st, 2023 with so many friends and family there to witness our collective milestone.

Since opening we've made it our business to host weekly classes based on the feedback that our community provides including Gentle Yoga on Monday evenings at 6:15 pm, Restorative Yoga on Tuesday's at 6:30 pm and Thursday's at 7:00 pm, and our weekly 'Wind-Down Wednesday' Sound Bath experience at 6:30 pm cst. We provide all of the tools so you won't need to bring anything to class except for an open heart and mind. 

We are continuing to upgrade our indoor and outdoor Oasis with add-ons like the Zen Garden Koi fish pond where our two Koi fish Oshun (orange) and Shango (white spotted) are steadily growing! Our garden continues to sprout giving harvest of tomatoes, green peppers, lettuce, lemon grass, oregano, basil. rosemary, yarrow, lemon balm, Chinese forget me nots, and so many other yummy treats! With your continued support through merch sales, weekly group and private sessions, trainings, workshops, and coaching we are continuing to make the dream a vision.

"My experience of the 200-hour YTT with the BLKYOGITRIBE was transformative in the best way. The program design and delivery were thoughtful, inclusive, extensive and comprehensive. The curriculum and the adaptive nature through which they were presented, were trauma-informed and asset-based in ways that invited all students to meet the challenges that emerged with true support and guidance. I appreciated being trained through strong fundamentals and with vital tools that prepared us to teach and manage our professional yoga life in alignment with the tenets of yoga and our commitments. The rich learning set up me to create safe, powerful yoga experiences for students and meet them where they are. Through this training, my asana, meditation and pranayama capacities elevated in quality, consistency, clarity. I have built relationships with other students that are rich, supportive and help me stay accountable to my goals and commitments."
