00:00:05,310 –> 00:00:10,920
Robin down reflecting on my way to

00:00:10,920 –> 00:00:14,790
crapola for the yoga retreat for women

4
00:00:14,790 –> 00:00:18,270
of color remembering the interview I did

5
00:00:18,270 –> 00:00:24,560
with the founder my employer Maya brewer

6
00:00:24,560 –> 00:00:28,920
okay thank you my lecture and discussion

7
00:00:28,920 –> 00:00:31,850
and sharing about steps we can take to

8
00:00:31,850 –> 00:00:33,960
really start the revolution of

9
00:00:33,960 –> 00:00:36,239
introducing more people of color to yoga

10
00:00:36,239 –> 00:00:42,510
nice you know so that barrier gets

11
00:00:42,510 –> 00:00:44,940
broken down the more people see that all

12
00:00:44,940 –> 00:00:47,520
people do yoga and the only way that

13
00:00:47,520 –> 00:00:49,350
changes is if people like myself like

14
00:00:49,350 –> 00:00:52,079
you continue to teach if you just show

15
00:00:52,079 –> 00:00:55,230
that we have women’s bodies and that you

16
00:00:55,230 –> 00:00:58,500
don’t have to be thin or a particular

17
00:00:58,500 –> 00:01:01,940
body type to do yoga

18
00:01:27,109 –> 00:01:30,030
keep it simple yoga’s not a religion and

19
00:01:30,030 –> 00:01:34,259
to present the healing benefits of yoga

20
00:01:34,259 –> 00:01:37,429
Ryan and to present Testaments and

21
00:01:37,429 –> 00:01:41,100
praise for oh it’s changed the lives of

22
00:01:41,100 –> 00:01:43,200
our people so to look to get people to

23
00:01:43,200 –> 00:01:47,479
step up and say hey this worked for me

24
00:01:48,229 –> 00:01:51,120
you know that yoga’s helped with the

25
00:01:51,120 –> 00:01:53,640
sciatica it was helped with hip pain

26
00:01:53,640 –> 00:01:56,010
that yoga’s helped with breathing issues

27
00:01:56,010 –> 00:01:58,320
a lot of people African American people

28
00:01:58,320 –> 00:02:00,750
struggle with asthma and many people

29
00:02:00,750 –> 00:02:03,000
that I’ve worked with are now in my

30
00:02:03,000 –> 00:02:05,100
testimony category that talk about how

31
00:02:05,100 –> 00:02:07,619
you know their asthma has been abated

32
00:02:07,619 –> 00:02:11,038
and they no longer using the nebulizer

33
00:02:11,038 –> 00:02:42,120
they call them the crew pollo center

34
00:02:42,120 –> 00:02:44,519
provided a backdrop where we were able

35
00:02:44,519 –> 00:02:49,670
to indulge in whole food healthy meals

36
00:02:49,670 –> 00:02:54,480
where were you able to exhale and cheer

37
00:02:54,480 –> 00:03:00,209
on our fellow sistance young lady said

38
00:03:00,209 –> 00:03:03,000
sign a minute shit sighing sighing

39
00:03:03,000 –> 00:03:06,329
sighing and clapping and shit and that’s

40
00:03:06,329 –> 00:03:08,370
what we do here that you’re actually one

41
00:03:08,370 –> 00:03:12,060
of the things we did so how many were

42
00:03:12,060 –> 00:03:14,180
practicing I found a practicing yoga

43
00:03:14,180 –> 00:03:17,870
probably for 25 years and teaching for

44
00:03:17,870 –> 00:03:22,380
22 ok and the fascinating thing for me

45
00:03:22,380 –> 00:03:25,170
also about yoga is that you know I feel

46
00:03:25,170 –> 00:03:27,180
that once you begin the practice it

47
00:03:27,180 –> 00:03:30,299
almost has like a phenomenon like a

48
00:03:30,299 –> 00:03:32,400
computer chip I feel like I have

49
00:03:32,400 –> 00:03:34,650
ingested a smart computer chip that

50
00:03:34,650 –> 00:03:38,270
tells me and educates me about this body

51
00:03:38,270 –> 00:03:40,700
spirit so that I know when to rest I

52
00:03:40,700 –> 00:03:42,980
know what to be active I know when to

53
00:03:42,980 –> 00:03:46,730
eat certain things and I never go as far

54
00:03:46,730 –> 00:03:49,550
off the path is when 25 years ago do you

55
00:03:49,550 –> 00:03:50,960
know what I mean like there’s a certain

56
00:03:50,960 –> 00:03:53,240
level of health that I always maintained

57
00:03:53,240 –> 00:03:55,550
but then like you said there are times

58
00:03:55,550 –> 00:03:57,860
when I have to pull back and take really

59
00:03:57,860 –> 00:04:00,970
good care of myself but I feel Yoga is a

60
00:04:00,970 –> 00:04:07,570
continually I’ll do active educating and

61
00:04:07,570 –> 00:04:10,550
supportive practice and you know that’s

62
00:04:10,550 –> 00:04:12,620
why i am so adamant and I’ve been

63
00:04:12,620 –> 00:04:15,620
working on bringing more diverse

64
00:04:15,620 –> 00:04:19,070
cultures to yoga for many years and now

65
00:04:19,070 –> 00:04:22,640
I’m adamant about it because it made

66
00:04:22,640 –> 00:04:24,200
such a difference in my life in the

67
00:04:24,200 –> 00:04:26,170
lives

68
00:04:26,170 –> 00:04:29,260
