The month of September is National Yoga Month, and while we could tell you some poses to do or show you some inspirational yogis on social media, we’re hoping you’ll get active in observation of this time. With that hope in mind, we tracked down 10 different yoga studios around the country that are owned by Black women and men that we hope you will check out — this month and onward. See the studios providing inclusive spaces for you and me to get our stretch and mindful breathing on by hitting the flip.

Touted as the first black woman-owned body positive yoga studio, co-founders Paris Alexandra and Alicia Ferguson have not only created a wellness-focused yoga studio, but they’ve also made their space on Water Street an environment that celebrates the arts. The studio is beautiful, with large windows, open space, plants and lots of sunlight in the trendy Dumbo neighborhood.
