Meditation for People of Color meets on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays from 2-3:30pm EDT for meditation practice. This meditation session will offer a safe space for people of color to pause and draw on our collective wisdom for deep healing.
Regular meditation promotes greater balance, ease, and peace of mind. It can be helpful during moments of stress, when you feel the need to reboot, find stillness and to breathe. Mindfulness is about being fully present in the moment and the breath I can be an anchor to the here and now.
This event is co-sponsored by Common Ground Healing Arts and the Insight Meditation Community of Charlottesville.

Our Meditation Leader: Ayanna Hall is a yoga and meditation teacher, healer, ruckus maker, and Therapeutic Youth Counselor. Ayanna’s journey with yoga has taught her how to love herself and her body. It has taught her how to unapologetically take up as much space as she chooses, and show all the way up. She teaches slow flow and Yin yoga, and received her Body Positive Yoga teacher certification in 2020, completing this journey in the middle of a pandemic. Her yoga and meditation practice continues to be inspired by the work of Amber Karnes, Michelle Cassandra Johnson, Dianne Bondy, Kelley Palmer, Ruth King, and a host of others.
In Ayanna’s class, you can expect to feel honored and welcomed just as you are. You will feel empowered, victorious, centered, and grounded. Ayanna is passionate about life, mental and emotional wellbeing, caring and holding space for others, and sharing the powerful benefits of this practice both with people of color, and those in larger bodies. Ayanna lives in Central Virginia with her son, Blake Kristopher, and daughter, Bailey Starr close by. Practicing and teaching the messages of self-care, social justice, and human rights on and off the yoga mat, you can find her on Facebook at Yanz Hall or Meditation and Yoga for People of Color.
