What inspired you to create a festival?
My experience in the yoga community at large has been very isolating, often I’m the only black person in the room if not the only male. I wanted to curate a space where Black and Brown teachers were showcased to display a new face of what yoga can look like and who gets to practice it.
What makes your festival unique?
The AMADOR Yoga & Art Festival is an innovative experience linking yoga, community and art all together as an extension of each other. Art is the manifestation of mindfulness and yoga is the source that ties it together.
What offering/presenter or class are you most excited about for this year’s event?
We’re excited about Trap Yoga with Eazy Spliffarchi, an authentic teacher that brings communities together through Hip-Hop, Trap Music and mobility. Considering the genre turned 50 this year I think this offering will be one of the most electric of them all.
