Trap yoga

There’s been a new trend taking over major cities. Trap yoga is positive movement that is meant to be inclusive and introduce people of color to a spiritual practice that they may not have been inclined to explore before. The class is meant to be fun yet it stays true to the spirituality of yoga. Rather than playing the soft mediation type of music that yogis are used to, trap yoga incorporates trap music with traditional yoga flows and movements.

The class is mindful that some of the attendees may be fist time yogis but is still suitable for experienced yogis. Our instructor was Cynthia. Throughout the class, the Cynthia continuously says “honor your body”. Meaning she’ll give you the basic poses but if your body allows you to pull that pose into a deeper stretch or into a more advanced pose, then go for it. Cynthia was very interactive, positive, and calming. She encourages attendees to speak and get to know other attendees. The class ends and $10 bottomless mimosas begin! Obviously, this was created by millennials lol.

I attended a class presented by the Healers Collective and instructed by Cynthia. Trap Yoga Jax was absolutely amazing.

Namaste 🙏🏾

    So happy you tried a class! Lots of people are finding their way to the practice through Trap Yoga. It’s been so dope teaching the classes and holding space for people who would have never came through otherwise.
