A bold new way to tackle health inequity: create holistic health leaders
charged to transform
BMYI promotes holistic education, and supports and engages men and boys of color to live healthy lives of peace and calm using yoga and mindfulness and LifeForce™ Development training as a means of human development.
The Black Male Yoga Initiative Center - Baltimore, is the first of its kind to address the root of the barriers and diseases in our community--the health of its Black Men- by offering them advances in this field of practice and a new set of resources for cultural leadership in the twenty-first century. Together we are creating an indispensable national resource for programming to unearth healthy communities at the root through yoga and mindfulness—helping us all make the case that, indeed the health of African American men is a key factor in the transformation of society.
