Black Girl In Om, an organization creating spaces for Black women to breathe easy, is celebrating its five-year anniversary in a major way.
On Friday, November 8th, the brand will reveal its 2019 Black Girl In Om List, acknowledging Black female practitioners and influencers in the wellness space. The list, which has honored wellness entrepreneur’s like HealHaus founder Elisa Shankle and Loveland’s Rachel Cargle, will this year celebrate and affirm 20 Black women who promote freedom and wellbeing. On the following day, November 9th, BGIO will continue the celebration at The Assembly for a curated day of wellness and programming for self-identified black women and women of color in the Bay Area.
The Annual Wellness Day touts itself as a “space for self-identified black women and women of color in the Bay Area to move our bodies, take good care of ourselves and hold the space for important conversations around freedom and wellbeing.” The four discussion tracks will include:
- Freedom & Sexuality
- Self-Actualization & Manifestation
- Radical Changemakers
- Creativity & Self-Love
The day’s itinerary is packed with activities designed to nurture the mind, body, and soul. Attendees will be immersed in physical self-care with heart-opening Vinyasa yoga taught by Koya Webb and a yoni steaming workshop with Ashley Asatu. They’ll even get a dose of heart-healing with classes like, “Nurturing Ourselves as Women of Color” taught by Dr. Tiffany Lester and Amber Quinones.
Founded by wellness visionary Lauren Ash, Black Girl In Om is a mindful lifestyle brand, global community, and a tangible platform for an increasingly marginalized audience around the world.
