Joining us today are Terry and Ericka Harris and Alonzo Nelson, Jr., Co Founders of Collective STL. This team of amazing yogi’s create a healthy and safe experience catered to African Americans by offering compassionate wisdom that helps heal the mind, body and spirit through techniques of yoga mindfulness and culturally relevant self-strategies.
In this episode:
Ericka and Terry talk about how their love for yoga transformed into the thought of bringing African American communities together through the Collective STL environment by creating a space that helps heal the mind, body and spirit.
The trio talks about the need and importance of accessibility not just for some but for ALL in terms of financial and economics. Before the Collective STL, North St. Louis had no yoga studios.
Alonzo discusses the platforms used to bring awareness to the African American communities about the healing qualities of yoga and the results that can be achieved thru a healthy mindset.
Ericka explains how the team goes above and beyond to make the space a welcoming one through creating a family environment, various classes and a donation based model so that even low income families can participate.
