Black Girl In Om powerfully embodies the many ways in which we can bring online communities to vibrant life. Founder Lauren Ash and Art Director Zakkiyyah Najeebah "promote holistic wellness and inner beauty for women of color" through their online publication, pop-up yoga classes, holistic wellness workshops, food churches, and fruitful collaborations. BGIO is about creating multiple spaces for women of color to breathe easy: on the mat, online, on the radio (their mindfulness podcast is a must listen).
Lucky for BGIO's many followers, Lauren and Zakkiyyah are working to bring BGIO on the road. Although Loam will be sharing a more in-depth profile of this powerhouse project in the coming months, we wanted to alert our community to their recent Kickstarter Campaign. Have five dollars to spare? Give it forward with BGIO. We're excited to see this vibrant community connect with new cities and we hope you'll consider spreading the love.
