A book club featuring authors and artists of color.

Reading is how we educate ourselves beyond our own worlds. Yoga is a tool to learn more about one’s self. Books + Yoga combines the two to promote a healed self and empowered community.

We believe finances should never be a barrier to self-work, therefore each session will be offered with sliding scale pricing and an option to borrow books.


Join Us!
