Bias and systemic racism contribute to trauma, mental illnesses, diseases, and death disproportionately impacting Black Americans. Black Americans are more likely to die early from all causes and are 20% more likely to suffer psychological distress than their white counterparts.

Yoga and meditation can help us create a legacy of generational health. Specifically, yoga and meditation can improve cardio and circulatory health, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and blood sugar, boost the immune system, build strength, increase flexibility, and much more.

With your Membership, you receive access to unlimited on-demand videos that are instructional and range in time, level, and focus area so you have the time to maintain a consistent, customized practice.

Whether you want to trim down, tone up, gain flexibility, increase your energy, or find inner peace, we've got you covered.

Our Story

Yoga Green Book was created in 2016 after seeing the need in the black community to have affirming, location-independent, holistic resources for healing and health.

After ten years of working as an electrical engineer, Carla quit her six-figure job, gave away everything that wouldn't fit into a backpack, and booked a one-way flight to start a year of international travel with her partner.

During her travels, she experienced the power of yoga.

Yoga helped her deeply shift and relax her mind and body so she could reclaim ease in her days and create a life she loves; Carla moved to her favorite city in the world (MedellĂ­n, Colombia) for three years, had her two babies abroad, and just relocated to Tulsa, OK, to start a new adventure.

While living as a digital nomad, Carla created Yoga Green Book to make yoga's transformational powers known and available to everyone regardless of location.

The name was inspired by the Negro Motorist Green Book . The original Green Book was a printed guide of businesses that weary black travelers could trust and safely take refuge in during the era of Jim Crow laws. Yoga Green Book leads black people to this online safe space to maximize their health through yoga and meditation.
