Yoga N Da Hood

  • Fortune Sound Club 147 East Pender Street Vancouver, BC, V6A 1T6 Canada (map)

Join us at Fortune once again for a very special edition of Vancouver's original sound-powered yoga experience - Sound Salutations: with guest teacher Ebony Smith: founder of Yoga N Da Hood coming all the way from Dallas, Texas to share the vibes.

Yoga N Da Hood is an organization dedicated to making wellness accessible to everyone by using yoga as tool to develop compassionate, healthy, and mindful individuals, families, organizations, and communities.

Yoga N Da Hood was founded by Ebony Smith aka The Ghetto Guru, a certified Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor and Wellness Coach. It exists as a wellness outreach organization that teaches people in under-served communities the art of self healing, self talk and self love through the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness. They offer free Yoga and Meditation classes with a mission to equip individuals with the tools to empower their own life. They are also raising funds to purchase a school bus which will be transformed into a mobile yoga studio for children.

Providing the beats as always is Tank Gyal, Vancouver's notorious Reggae Dancehall Queen and creator and resident of the city's longest-running reggae dancehall weekly: Thursday Ting (taking place weekly at the Waldorf Tiki Room).

You can also catch Ebony and Tank Gyal laying down a free outdoor sound-powered yoga jam opening up the Denman Street Car Free Festival on Saturday June 16th at 12pm. Details on the exact location coming soon, also stay tuned for pop-classes by Ebony the weekend of June 16-17.

Doors @ 5:30pm, Class @ 6-7:30pm. Admission is by sliding scale ($10 minimum). Tickets available online or at the door. Bring your mat and your Irie vibes.
