“YBB feels like a safe haven to me. Since the first day I stepped through the door, it felt nice to be surrounded by faces that look like you. There’s no pressure to act like someone else and everyone gets accepted by who they are and how they come. The yoga itself is very calming and feels rewarding after a long week. I’m very happy that something like Yoga for Black Babes exists ❤️”

“I came in touch with YBB in a very busy time in my life, I was struggling with my studies and personal problems and my mind was often clogged with thoughts. The yoga classes helped me clear my mind, I could experience a moment of peace and quiet. I felt more in touch with my body and myself. It's a beautiful place with beautiful souls that take great care of the community.”

“Since I moved to The Netherlands I was searching for a yoga community for people of color. Because for me, yoga is a form of relaxation, meditation and self-expression. Hence why it is important for me to feel at home. I found Yoga for Black Babes and I had to book a session, it was everything I imagined and more. Yoga for Black Babes’ community embodies connection, healing and safety. A session with YBB is a great way to reset ❤️
