VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. - May 14, 2021 - PRLog -- The 2nd Annual International Yoga Day: A Hybrid Experience, June 17-19, is a 3-night offering of freedom, love, and soul.  ISY kicks off with 2-wellness virtual workshops on Thursday; tennis demonstration/clinic, and 4-yoga sessions in-person on Friday; a virtual wine tasting and poetry will conclude the experience on Juneteenth, Saturday. ISY is the brainchild of former PR Executive, turned certified Yoga instructor, meditation coach, and wellness ambassador Karen Taylor Bass (RYT-200) (https://karentaylorbass.com). "I wanted to bring together a community of men and women to breathe, release, heal, and feel. We need a safe space to feel good, move, dialogue, and honor the body," says Karen. The event sponsor is the United States Tennis Association (https://usta.com). *Space is limited for in-person activities for pre-screening and COVID-19 protocol.

International Soulful Yoga: A Hybrid Experience is a movement dedicated to self-care and soul-care. Learning to put self-first for preservation. A healing yoga party with tennis, wine, poetry, music, and workshops.

"Last summer, when I offered ISY (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_8nR8YE_ds&t=2s) during the pandemic for 1-day on Zoom, we had 131 registrants from New York to London. It was humbling and honest - Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) were under siege, and the event gave them a glimpse of release from daily trauma, not to mention the need for movement. Yoga connects the mind, body, and soul. I wanted to create an offering to give people a sampling of expression through soul-care. If I can provide one hour, one day, a few minutes of relaxation via conversation, laughter, and yoga to communities via Zoom and in-person interaction, then that is what I will do," explains Karen.

David J. Williams, Manager of Diversity & Inclusion, USTA Eastern and event sponsor, shared, "We recognize that tennis is a way to social-distancing without being socially distant. The benefits of the sport provide players with incredible health benefits such as improved cardiovascular strength and effective and natural stress release."

Workshop Presenters: Karen Taylor Bass (Soulful Yoga); Syntyche' Francella (Healing Station, NY); Syreeta Scott (Duafe Hair Care); Bri Renee (Compassion Yoga); Sundays.Gold (Twerkasana Yoga); Deirdre Tinsley (Smooth Flow); Frances Ferdinand (HQ Tennis/USTA Eastern); and Mozel Watson (Harlem Wine God).

On-site Location for Yoga + Tennis: Elmont High School, 555 Ridge Road, Elmont, NY 11003.
