What is trap yoga?
Yoga literally means “union”.
Trap music is a style of music originating in Atlanta, Georgia. Themes generally include experiences of hardship in the "trap", poverty, violence and harsh experiences that artists have faced.
Trap Yoga is an opportunity for our people to embrace self care tools that are often stigmatized in communities of color- ie. yoga
BLK Pearl’s style of Trap Yoga has a DJ live mix trap instrumentals so each class has its own vibe. Traditional yoga classes are silent or quiet, but for people with certain traumas silence can be overwhelming. We meet our people where they are, with love and compassion to inspire self care.
According to the ancient sage Patanjali, yoga is the neutralization of ego-directed feelings, because once these become stilled, the yogi realizes that they are and always have been, one with the Infinite.
Is BLK Pearl only for Women?
