My inspiration for the yoga practice comes from so many people, some I know personally and most come from the amazing people I follow or follow me. This pose was inspired by the SUPA amazing @ben_istimur. I’m not at his level yet but a good start. Thanks @ben_istimur for being included in my universe. Peace & Love

Sistah Vegan is a unique gathering of reflections, poems, personal narratives, and critical essays from a diverse community of North American black-identified vegans who describe their many and varied motivations for deciding not to eat animal products. However, Sistah Vegan goes way beyond discussions of diet and lifestyle to examine veganism’s intersection with race, nutrition, gender-identification, animal rights, spirituality, health and healing, body image, parenting, and personal and collective liberation. Thought-provoking, challenging, passionate, and affirming in its identification and dismantling of environmental racism, ecological devastation, and other social injustices, Sistah Vegan is an in-your-face handbook for our time. It calls upon all of us to make radical changes for the betterment of ourselves, our planet, and—by extension—everyone.
