Take A Deep Breath

Take A deep breath and dive deep inside.

Inhale deeply and exhale slowly...

Deep diaphragmatic breathing ...

An awakening, into being ... mindfulness ... being present 💝 

Which is what I did on my hiatus...

Slowly returning to be of service to a larger part of my community.

Sometimes slowing down and allowing ... things to come to you.

It’s time for women of color to be the change we want to see in our lives! Give your body, mind, and spirit over to the power of yoga as we salute change.

Through yoga, pranayama, self-reflection, and an exploration of personal diasporic perspectives, we learn to

  • Change the way we breathe
  • Change how we move
  • Change our consciousness.

Open up to self-love and sister-woman spirit at the Yoga Retreat for Women of Color—a transformational experience of community and wellness.

NEW YORK, NY. (Thursday, November 11, 2021)  So this isn't our typical live - we just didn't want to say 'Happy Veterans Day', Happy National Caregiver's Month', 'Happy Holidays' and then sit back and not catch you up on what's been going on with us. 

It's been a CRAZY year for all of us- we relocated, we've added so many people to our caregiving family, and we went to Mexico. 

So we've got a LOT of catching up to do, and we hope you'll join us, our LIVE Facebook private group sessions are about the challenges of modern day elder care.  The follow up resource for the soon to be released documentary “Yoga Flava: The Silva Lining”.  A new course will be available online offering a fresh approach to elder care, while honoring the needs of the caregiver.
