NEW YORK - May 21, 2020 - PRLog -- The Associated Press reports that based on available state and local data, about a third of US COVID-19 fatalities are of African Americans — although in the areas analyzed, only about 14 percent of the population was African American. An immediate effect of COVID-19 is PTSD. Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, like a pandemic. For people with PTSD, having lived through such extreme circumstances can lead to a wide range of symptoms including depression, anxiety, sleep, and concentration issues.

Karen Taylor Bass, ( certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) shares, "People of color are suffering the most from the pandemic. Yoga connects the mind, body, and soul. I have been offering my brand of soulful yoga at no cost to frontline workers and at a reduced rate for others. My community is predisposed to everything, and the pandemic has only made our health and wellness more compromise. If I can provide one hour, few minutes of relaxation via meditation, laughter, and yoga to communities on the front-line via Zoom, Skype, and Google Classroom then that is what I will do."

International Yoga Day is June 21 and Karen Taylor Bass will be partnering with Black Yoga teachers to offer complimentary yoga classes, meditation, panels, mental health awareness check-in, and virtual marketplace for small business owners. Celebrity Carla Hall, chef, author, and TV personality recently raved about Karen's Soulful Yoga class and said, "In a word, amazing."

"Soulful Yoga is dedicated to self-care and self-love. Learning to put self-first for preservation. I like to call it a healing yoga party with music. Musical selections vary from jazz, reggae, rhythm and blues, gospel, blue-eyed soul, hip hop, popular music, and more. Soulful Yoga offers a deeper connection to tap into trauma, stress, pain, joy, and love with easy yoga movement and affirmations from the diaspora (India, Africa, Caribbean) with a splash of western influence."
