Yoga- LUCY

Love Unity Community Yoga or LUCY is a grassroots social justice trauma informed yoga program that focuses on making yoga accessible, informed and fun! Founded by Yamikani Msosa in 2017, when she found that most yoga classes that she attended in Ottawa consisted of able-bodied, white and middle class folks. She wanted to change the climate and began teaching at Bodyfull Yoga at The Cultural Arts Studio, School Of Afro-Caribbean Dance . Since moving to Toronto, Yami has been offering classes in various community spaces, including TLC for Your Beautiful Blackness, Ryerson University, Sexual Assault Centre of Peterborough.

And when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
nor welcomed
but when we are silent
we are still afraid

So it is better to speak
remembering
we were never meant to survive.”

— Audre Lorde
