While media images present Black people and other people of color in a recurring state of anger, frustration and turmoil, they are actually suffering from generational heartbreak and trauma, according to Dr. Gail Parker, psychotherapist, yoga therapist and author of Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma.

An authority on the intersection of yoga, mental health, and social activism, “Dr. Gail” talks with YJ Senior Editor Tamara Jeffries about yoga’s role in healing racial wounds and how to engage in spiritual activism as a path to inner awareness and social peace.
