Local instructors and activists Kelley Carboni-Woods, Jasmine Hines, and Grace Millsap organized a night of yoga and discussion surrounding tough topics—like assault and inclusivity—facing the Charlotte community right now. The intention was not to solve anything immediately but to begin the conversation and discuss how to support each other and make changes. It was inspiring to see studio owners, teachers, and students sitting in a circle, in the same room for the first time, using the tools yoga provides to face these challenges head on. This was a powerful evening of taking yoga off the mat and into our lives.
