Black Health and Wellness, the 2022 Black History Month theme, is an opportunity to highlight the role that yoga can and has played throughout history as a practice of self-care. Black Women’s Historical Wellness: History as a Tool in Culturally Competent Mental Health Services; written by Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans, Professor and Director of the Institute for Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Georgia State University, shares the story of how Rosa Parks practiced and shared yoga with various communities throughout her lifetime.
