Sinikiwe Dhliwayo founded Naaya because she noticed a gap in services and resources for BIPOC wellness. Centered around yoga and mindful practices, the community is seeking to diversify and open up the movement of self-love and self-care.
In September 2020, Naaya is gearing up to launch BIPOC wellness support for high school students. The initiative is launched in response to COVID-19. It will offer participants a full curriculum that centers on yoga and meditation. It will also give them access to a therapist who will be able to support their needs during the pandemic.
The Check-In will start with sixty students who will be broken into four cohorts, with a dedicated cohort for LGBTQI students. Spanning a total of six weeks, the curriculum will be delivered virtually.
