Naaya's aim is to work within communities where wellness isn't a buzzword. Currently people of color are highly impacted by not having access to resources needed to help with their mental and physical health. By providing affordable classes Naaya hopes to democratize this access. Naaya will cultivate a community where people of color can afford to prioritize their physical and mental health. Through the practices of yoga and mindfulness people are given the tools of self-care which assist in helping people cope with whatever they might be dealing with.
Sunday sessions at Ace Hotel New York provided a chance to get grounded before the week starts. The practice will encompass breath work and basic yoga asana. Proceeds for the Sunday sessions are in support of the Naaya initiative.
Sinikiwe Dhliwayo is a creative producer, yoga instructor and founder of Naaya. Born in Zimbabwe, she has an obsession with yoga that rivals that of her obsession with her kid sister. Sinikiwe can be found off the mat reading all the things, cooking and smiling. Her heart skips a beat at the prospect of disseminating tools of yoga and meditation to people of color.
