As our nation grieves the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many other Black lives lost at the hands of the police officers sworn to protect them, we at Yoga is Youthfulness wanted to publicly express our solidarity and say that Black Lives Matter.
Our Black friends, neighbors, colleagues, and community members are suffering and not safe, and treated as if they don’t matter. For those of us outside this community, it is clear that we must find ways to do much more to dismantle systemic racism in our country.
To our members in the Black community: we see you. You matter, your lives matter, and you are valued here at YiY. Please know that we are doing the hard work of educating ourselves about the different ways we can take action in meaningful ways in our private and professional lives.
In solidarity, Yoga is Youthfulness (YiY).
