Stretching Time to Find the “Me Hour”

With Denisha Parker.

Stretching Time to Find the “Me Hour”

Here’s what struck Denisha Parker when she started practicing yoga as a way to decompress: She was one of the only women of color in her daily classes. As she progressed on her yoga journey and became an instructor, she continued to wonder why.  This past year, Denisha decided to stop wondering and step up to make a change. In a year marred by pandemic pressures and a high-intensity focus on racial issues, Denisha was determined to bring the balm of movement and mindfulness to women of color and other members of diverse communities.  The result: Yoganisha, a yoga practice where all are welcome.
