POWER YOGA IN SELLWOOD, OREGON

Visit our beautiful studio and practice in comfort and safety. We keep the practice room heated to between 95 and 100 degrees (about your body temperature) so that your joints and muscles are properly warm to practice safely and effectively. Fresh air moves through our big spacious studio so that you can breathe easily. We heat the studio with far-infrared radiant heat so that the air doesn’t dry your sinuses or your skin.

Our Mission at yogaRIOT is to cause a ruckus in your being, to disrupt the status quo of your yoga and to create space for you to step into your biggest most powerful self.

SCHEDULE

With over 40 classes a week, you can practice no matter how busy your schedule.

Acting from a place of love?

Thank you yogaRIOT for sharing your platform. I’ Thank you yogaRIOT for sharing your platform. I’m Mira, and I work @livingyogaor as a Training & Equity Facilitator. I wanted to share my thoughts not as a yoga teacher or practitioner, but as someone committed to doing antiracist work for the long haul. A bit about me: I identify as a queer South Asian woman. My mom is Pakistani and my dad is Indian, and I’m the daughter of immigrants. I’m often reminded that my life is shaped by histories of colonialism, racism, and the ways these work to exploit land and labor. At the same time, I recognize that within this diverse South Asian community, anti-Blackness is rampant. Just as White people are called to address and dismantle racism and anti-Blackness in their communities, South Asians need to do the work too. Being in solidarity with Black folks and communities means channeling money to Black-led organizing; educating ourselves about the history and continuing legacy of racism; understanding how caste oppression and colorism intersects with anti-Blackness, and being willing to interrupt and dismantle the oppressive hierarchies that exist in our communities; recognizing the inherent anti-Blackness of the model minority myth; and listening to and supporting the demands for institutional and systemic change. I’ve benefited and learned so much from activists, writers, scholars, and folks speaking up about injustices. If you can, support their work financially and amplify their voices, because what they do is critical labor. @blackwomenradicals @wellreadblackgirls @laylafsaad @kendriana.speaks @resmaamenakem @dalitdiva @thepolisproject @decolonizethisplace

“I have never been in a yoga class with more tha “I have never been in a yoga class with more than 5 black men and even that is a reach. When I became a teacher, I felt that those in the black community, especially my black male friends, did not understand and laughed at the idea of me doing yoga and being a yoga teacher. On the opposite side of the spectrum, those in the white community have almost clung to me in a tokenized way. For most parts of my yoga journey I have had to think 5 steps in advance. How will the music affect my students? How will my students perceive me based on the music I play? How do I perform an adjustment without seeming threatening? Are students just in the class because I am black? How can I make sure that students feel safe with me yet also see that I am strong? These are only some of the things that I think about. Up until 2018 I was continually looking on Instagram to see if I could find another black male who taught yoga and was near. I wanted to have a community, I wanted to look around the room and see those who looked like me, not just feel welcomed in the space, but to see myself represented in that space.

It wasn’t until I moved to Portland and was asked to join BLACK MEN BEND and BLACK BOYS OM that I started to see my self represented everywhere (virtually). I was able to have these conversations with other black men about our teaching styles and how we can stand out. Before that time looking at Instagram for black male yogis was very hard to find. Now, with the click of a few hashtags, I can see that black people around the world are practicing yoga. Being a part of this movement for the past year and a half has changed my perspective on yoga in the world and more specifically my community. I now see how integral it is that the black community have a space where we are able to gather and practice together consistently, even if it is virtually. Having the ability to practice with black men around the world allowed me to ground down in my practice where I was. When I first came to yoga, my impression was that the ones who make an impact are skinny/muscular, white, males or females.

“A message: My name is Day. I am a Black woman w “A message: My name is Day. I am a Black woman who practices yoga. I am the founder of @omthrivefoundation, a nonprofit organization that encourages healing from domestic violence trauma through yoga. 
My practice started from desperation to heal my body. I was broken physically, mentally and spiritually. I very much experienced overt racism, covert racism, overtly covert racism on and off of my mat. The White women guilty of these offenses had NO CLUE that I came to the yoga studio to ESCAPE the abuse I experienced in my home. Had they known would they have treated me differently? Does it really matter WHY I’m there in order to be treated with civility? With compassion? With respect?
Obviously the majority of my yoga studio encounters were not unpleasant and I was blessed to find a community that embraced me. That is my goal with Om Thrive. 
I am asking YOU to please ask yourself how your implicit bias plays a role in welcoming new faces, skin tones and body types to your studio. You may have NO IDEA why we are there but your studio may be the safe space that saves us.
