Weini Smon is a Stockholm based yoga teacher with Eritrean roots. She became a certified Yoga teacher in 2020 from Sampoorna Yoga Teacher Training in Goa. She describes yoga as a practice that enhances your mental and physical resilience and self-exploration. A big part of her job as a yoga teacher is to create safe spaces for marginalised communities to practice yoga. Wellness practices should not be a privilige but a basic right and accesible to everyone.
Weini will give an intro of the history of radical self-care that was popularised by the Black Panther movement and how we can apply these values in our communities today. This part will be held in English and is a part of the radical self-care talk with Saba Afeworki and Semhar Araya
