I am Rebeccah and field trips are an opportunity to share safe and fun experiences together! I keep a lookout for relevant activities that we can attend and coordinate as a yoga for people of color sangha. I also plan and organize overnight camping trips and hiking meet ups, and any other outings related to Yoga POC Sangha’s mission and values about overall wellness, and spiritual and social justice. In the past I have collaboratively organized a film screening of the movie Blindspotting at the downtown public library, and a caravan to the feast day at the Laguna Pueblo.
Being a part of Yoga POC Sangha brings the light and joy of compassion into my life. Upon moving to Albuquerque, I found it to be a nurturing and safe space for personal and communal growth, and I find the Sunday yoga practice to provide the grounding energy I need to move with freedom in this world. Creating community that is a loving space for all people of color aligns with my personal mission of supporting people in healing from trauma. As a Black woman (she/her pronouns), I find being in the intentionally anti-racist, anti-sexist and anti-colonial space that is Yoga POC Sangha to be healing and empowering for all sorts of trauma. One of the beautiful things about this community is our ability to move through this world and spread our energy into other spaces as we explore extended communities and surrounded places!
