Sidewalk Detroit: Healing Hatha Yoga for the Community


Sidewalk Detroit is a non-profit assembled of creatives who are working to celebrate life in Detroit through public space and experience design. Since 2018, Sidewalk Detroit has made it possible for Yoganic Flow to bring an all-levels yoga class to Eliza Howell Park. Every summer, Sidewalk Detroit brings family-friendly programming, like concerts, African dance and yoga!


For the last two summers, the Yoganic Flow team has brought yoga to the Brightmoor community courtesy of Sidewalk Detroit. They extended the partnership at the onset of COVID-19. When the novel coronavirus hit Motown, it hit hard! When everything shut down, many of us shut down. Our whole world was suddenly flipped upside down. With job and food uncertainty and insecurity many people in our community are suffering. Therefore, Sidewalk Detroit decided to help our community cope and heal by cultivating a schedule of uplifting online programming: The Online Artist Residency.

Yoganic Flow Founder, Kerrie Trahan was brought on to offer a series of accessible yoga classes: Healing Hatha Yoga.


Healing Hatha Yoga is an all-levels yoga class that concentrates on healing the entire body and mind with asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and dhyana (meditation).The live-streamed yoga classes supported by Sidewalk Detroit were designed to support Detroiters in these unprecedented times, especially artists and creatives in developing a daily practice that connects the mind, body, and spirit. Each day of class, a part of the body or aspect of the mind that may be in need of healing, recovery and restoration will be focused on to develop both strength and relaxation. Together, Sidewalk Detroit and Yoganic Flow, are partnering during COVID-19 to virtually deliver hope, health and community to our city.

Due to a consistently growing number of participants the class schedule was extended! The remaining classes are as follows:

4/29/20 Wednesday
