Juneteenth Commemoration
Acknowledging & Honoring OUR Freedom

This class is pay-what-you-can. Registration details to follow.

Join J Miles of Maha Vira Yoga, Ashley Williams from BareSoul Yoga, Shanna Latia and Dr. Ram Bhagat in partnership with Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, for a Juneteenth event celebrating the life, liberation and the legacy of enslaved people.

Juneteenth, also known as Black Independence Day, is the oldest national holiday that commemorates the end of chattel slavery in the US. We will acknowledge this land, honor our Ancestors, and recognize the self-determination of Black people. We will center our Collective healing through movement, breath, sound, and holistic practices curated to help us understand how to hold loving, caring space for ourselves and each other. So bring your yoga mat or a blanket, some water, and an open heart for this community celebration.

This is a fundraising event to support the mission of Project Yoga Richmond, and to amplify collective unity. Let us come together to practice and contemplate how we show up as community in this beautifully cultivated green space. All are welcome.
