A TRF Tuesday Event
Overview of the Program
Afro Flow Yoga® is an embodied practice integrating dance movements of the African diaspora with meditative yoga and live healing music, promoting individual and collective healing in a compassionate, non-judgmental, inclusive, and safe environment.
Afro Flow Yoga® grew out of Leslie and her husband’s explorations of healing and their African American and Caribbean heritage in West Africa, Haiti, and Jamaica.
The couple developed a new integrated practice, Afro Flow Yoga®, that integrates Leslie’s deep knowledge of yoga and African and Afro-Caribbean dance, Jeff’s extraordinary fluency in drums, melodic, and other traditional African instruments, and their passion for the empowerment, education, healing, spirituality, and wellness of all they serve. As a result, Afro Flow Yoga® is a unique approach to physical, emotional, and mental wellness.
