Welcome to your home away from home.

At Black Girl In Om, we create space for women of color to breathe easy. BGIO Self-Care Sunday is the beating heart of our community and we’re proud to be in year three of holding safe, sacred space for all of us to connect, heal, and love individually and collectively.

Now hosted three times per month, with varying themes and programs, we invite you to venture deeper into your wellness journey with an affirming community and guide. Yoga and meditation are always included as an intentional component of the experience.

The session begins promptly at 11:00am and ends at 1:00pm.

 

This session is led by Danielle Lyles Barton.

A California-native, but nomad at heart, Danielle Lyles Barton made her way to Chicago where she vigorously pursued self-discovery and self-development. As a result of her own journey, Love and healing are the forces that deeply guide Danielle and it becomes evident in her work.

From the time Danielle was first introduced to yoga, it was a medicine for both her body and her heart and her mission is to share this healing with communities of women. Each class she teaches incorporates functional breath work, intention setting, heart-full devotion, and positive affirmations. The teachers who have been most influential in Danielle’s teaching style are Aadil Palkhivala and Catherine Ashton, and she is deliberate about incorporating their philosophy into each class. She leads alignment-based classes that honor students by allowing them safe space to become curious about their own bodies, their own thoughts, and their own experiences. In teaching Hatha Yoga, Danielle guides her students into the deepest parts of their fascia and their feelings, where healing can be ignited.
