Yoga for Peace

When: Thursday, July 14th 7 – 8:30pm

Where: Jefferson School African-American Heritage Center

For more information please visit

This vigil is an opportunity for us to engage in a peaceful practice and be with each other during this time of challenge and change. Join Eboni Bugg for a class that is both grounding and aims to harness our collective power for healing, growth and change.


Participants are encouraged to arrive between 6:30-6:45pm. Space will limit how many participants are able to join the class. The earlier you arrive, the more likely you are to ensure your space. Please bring your own yoga mat. We will have some yoga mats on hand, but not enough for everyone. There will be only one entrance to the event: the doors on the inside of the building near the 2nd floor hallways restrooms. The Commerce Street entrance will be closed.

The yoga class will be one hour (7:00-8:00pm) and there will be time afterwards to view the current photography exhibit at African American Heritage Center, Sheila Pree Bright’s 1960Now (

All levels are welcome. This yoga vigil is offered by donation, and all donations will go to support the work of Black Lives Matter.

This event is being offered in partnership by Common Ground Healing Arts,Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, and The Women’s Initiative.
