Move & Groove Yoga co-sponsored by YWCHAC

Move and Groove YogaCelebration of Women Wellness Event co-sponsored by YWCHAC

move & groove is a wellness initiative that seeks to build community through events focusing on music, movement and mindfulness practices. Move & Groove: Jazz & Yoga ​is our premier event which features vinyasa yoga and live music. Partnering with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem since 2016, this monthly open-level class pairs Vinyasa Flow yoga with live accompaniment by a rotation of live musicians. Move & Groove: Jazz & Yoga originated as a donation-based class that welcomes new visitors to the museum and supports local musicians. It has been widely received as a ‘Hug for Harlem’ as varied community members have developed a yoga practice while supporting the Museum. It has been an hour and a half of respite for very busy New Yorkers who need a space to rest and restore. We are in the process of expanding to event spaces that can accommodate our growing following and the fanbase of well-known musicians.  In addition to monthly event with the Museum, move and groove yoga has been featured in the New York Times and has partnered with ThriveMindfulness project to bring you Reflect + Renew on Martha's Vineyard. 

The room was electric & the music was soothing and beautiful
