Kimberly Archibald Russell: Cleveland, Ohio, USA

Yoga is empowered wellness: physically, energetically, emotionally! It is a practice of developed discipline to address life’s challenges as they appear. I teach from my practice, reminding practitioners of their Divinity, remembering this practice left by our ancestors.

I found yoga via prenatal. I tell folks that yoga has supported me from maternity to menopause. After three miscarriages, my successful pregnancy occurred when I incorporated prenatal yoga. After 30 years of corporate work, I teach yoga full time, partnering with Black community nonprofit agencies to bring the practice to nontraditional yoga spaces: churches, libraries, recreation/community centers, nursing homes and senior centers. Everyone should have access to this practice to be holistically well, empowered, and able to pursue their life’s purpose.
