Again, Day 21 of the #yogamenofcolor challenge is Scorpion pose or Vrschikasana
Come to the wall.
Bring the forearms and palms flat against the floor.
Bend the elbows, bringing the upper arms perpendicular to the forearms.
Come up into Downward Facing Dog with the legs.
Walk the feet in toward the hands as much as possible.
Bend one knee and begin to kick up with the opposite leg.
Note that the head stays up off the floor. The gaze should be down at the floor.
If you are able to get both legs up and invert fully, begin to work on taking the feet off the wall and balancing independently.
From Forearm Stand, bend the knees.
Lift your head and bring your feet close to your head as you come in to a deep backbend. The knees will separate, but keep the toes together.
Take a pic of yourself in the pose of the day (this was yesterday’s pose) and tag and follow the hosts: @shawnrevfit @kik_snoopie @thelonestar_yogi @dcsaurus and me @jirodgreene.

proletarianfeminism

We knew that our experiences as black women were completely different from those of our sisters in the white women’s movement. And we had no desire to sit in some consciousness raising group with white women and bare our souls.

Women can never be free in a country that is not free. We can never be liberated in a country where the institutions that control our lives are oppressive. We can never be free while our men are oppressed. Or while the amerikan government and amerikan capitalism remain intact.

But it is imperative to our struggle that we build a strong black women’s movement. It is imperative that we, as black women, talk about the experiences that shaped us; that we assess our strengths and weaknesses and define our own history. It is imperative that we discuss positive ways to teach and socialize our children.

The poison and pollution of capitalist cities is choking us. We need the strong medicine of our foremothers to make us well again. We need their medicines to give us strength to fight and the drive to win. Under the guidance of Harriet Tubman and Fannie Lou Hamer and all of our foremothers, let us rebuild a sense of community. Let us rebuild the culture of giving and carry on the tradition of fierce self-determination to move on closer to freedom.
