Event Details

As Richmonders, we know our city has a long, layered history of racism and trauma. Each of us will arrive at this space with our own experiences, joys, and hardships. Let’s connect with our ancestral past, investigate our feelings, and process what arises in the context of yoga, dance, and meditation.

Program:

  • PYR Board Member Dr. Ram Bhagat offers an oral history of Juneteenth and how it connects us all.
  • Stretch the body and mind with yoga lead by Dr. Ram Bhagat.
  • Raise your vibrations with drumming and dancing.
  • Integrate what we’ve experienced through meditation.
  • Close with a sharing circle.Rose Garden Terraced Lawn

We welcome people of all racial backgrounds to practice together and contemplate how they show up in the community in this beautifully cultivated green space.

All PYR and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden events require mask-wearing, social distancing, and smaller attendance. Yogis may arrive as early as 8:30 a.m. to set up their mats.
