Brandon Copeland with Trap Yoga — HBE ENGAGE Bridge Builder Event
April 14, 2020
The practice of Yoga is usually associated with silence, but in instructor Brandon Copeland’s classes, he challenges his students to find inner peace over booming rap beats. In 2013, the 26-year-old opened a Washington D.C.-based yoga studio, Khepera Wellness, after feeling like the essence of black culture was being excluded from majority-white yoga spaces in the area. The outcome: Trap Yoga — a course intended to both challenge the limits of one’s physicality and speak to the culture’s inherent spirituality. http://www.thefader.com/2017/02/01/khepera-wellness-black-yoga-studio
Hooks Book Events is bringing Trap Yoga virtually to the students of Goodwill Excel Charter School while they are engaged in distance learning.
