Our culture tends to push aside grief, sadness and disappointment — alienating us from one another and from the fullness of lived experience. But grief, sadness and disappointment are unavoidable and essential parts of the human experience. They are also gateways to deeper love, compassion, wisdom and gratitude. In this practice, we'll use light asana, meditation, sound and sangha to create sacred space for all of the grief we have been holding for the past several years. We'll tap into the energy and blessing of community to normalize the expression of grief and hold space for one another. The way forward is through our present suffering together, not alone.
The workshop will be offered in a hybrid format, so you can join us in person at the studio (masks are optional) or online.
A recording of this workshop will be available to registered students for 30 days after the live event.
Reggie is a certified yoga and meditation teacher and the founder/chief serving officer of Active Peace Yoga. His yoga and meditation practice have served as a sanctuary of peace and perspective while navigating the stresses of being a black man in the world and serving in pressure filled jobs at the height of politics. He began practicing yoga under extreme emotional distress at work and now freely shares his peace and practice with all walks of life.
Through Active Peace Yoga, he offers asana and meditation classes to help others nurture peace of mind, creativity, equanimity in spirit and physical health—helping people nurture well-being as foundational, rather than an afterthought. Reggie has taught Members of Congress, Congressional Staff, leading progressive organizations and individuals from all walks of life simple tools for managing stress and bringing peace to mind body and spirit.
He has also been a featured speaker on new consciousness, racial justice and civic engagement for leading wellness publications, podcasts and platforms—Mind and Life Institute, CTZNWell, Wanderlust, the Be Here Now Network, the Hanuman Academy, Yoga Alliance, and Upaya Zen Center, among others.
In addition to his yoga teaching practice, Reggie has held many senior strategic and logistical roles across a variety of fields, ranging from global marketing, digital and community organizing, government relations, international education to Presidential campaigning.
Reggie's life work sits at the intersection of bringing more peace and balance to activists, guiding the wellness community toward being more engaged, concerned citizens and enhancing the well-being of all people. Achieving this balance is how we catalyze transformative change in our society, which we are desperately in need of at this moment.
