Beginning on November 13th, the Humans of Color Movement Alliance (HoCMA) will lead a weekly POC Yoga class every Tuesday at The People's Yoga
at the NE 2nd studio (5428 NE 30th Ave).
This class will be a safe wellness space for those that identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPoC) — aiming to provide a welcoming and community-oriented place to grow, heal, and support decompression from racialized harm and inequities.
Rotating weekly, two HoCMA teachers will co-teach each class, drawing from each of our diverse skills and experiences to include Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, Restorative, Kaleidoscope Yoga, or Ayurveda. Classes may often integrate partner and group practices, self-massage, sound healing, breathing techniques, meditation, and community building.
$14 Drop-In class
$30 New Student Intro (30 days unlimited)
+ Class cards or Monthly passes available
+ SCHOLARSHIP AVAILABLE through The Peoples Yoga
***No one will be turned away for lack of funds.***
Please honor and respect our need to gather and hold space as community.
Allies who wish to support the Humans of Color Movement Alliance or POC classes can share this event with those who identify as BIPoC or email [email protected]
to learn more about how to donate to or support HoCMA.

About Humans of Color Movement Alliance:
The Humans of Color Movement Alliance is an alliance of movement teachers of color seeking to provide accessible and representative healing and creative spaces for communities of color in Portland. We are dedicated to facilitating mindful movement and meditation classes for those who identify as members of a marginalized ethnic minority group. We aim to create welcoming, safe, and community oriented spaces for communities of color to grow and heal together. We unite through a variety of practices for the body, mind and spirit to inspire and support self-care within our own underserved and underrepresented populations. We are here to collectively heal and resist socio-economic exploitation and oppression in all of its forms, in an effort to assist in the liberation of all beings. Through diversity and collaboration, healing and celebration, meditation and expression, together we can move — together we are a movement.
