SELF - Afro Flow Yoga Helped Me Connect To The Rhythm Of My Ancestors And View Fitness In A New Way

Now, I’m totally hooked on the flow. I consider myself a person that’s pretty invested in exercising—I pay for a gym membership and actually use it, and I’ve started to enjoy running outdoors now that I’ve found a few favorite sneakers and sports bras that make me feel secure. But like many people, I have a hard time getting active when it’s cold out. Between the months of December and March, I tend to go into workout hibernation. I’d just rather stay in my apartment and Netflix and chill (literally) than swing a kettlebell.

Light drumming and singing accompanied a gentle, yoga flow.
