Democratizing the Wellness Space with Sinikiwe Dhliwayo of Naaya
This week I sit down with incredible Sinikiwe Dhliwayo of Naaya Wellness. As it stands now, wellness is synonymous with whiteness, affluence, and being able-bodied. Naaya exists to redefine this narrative. Naaya is bringing people of color into the conversation of wellness with yoga and mindfulness programming for communities who have been traditionally overlooked and excluded from those spaces. Naaya exists for people of color to feel seen, heard, and, most importantly, welcome. We have a dynamic conversation about privilege, accountability, and self care vs. self indulgence.
