Education: Maternal Health & Instilling hope in BIPOC children: What we know, what we don’t know, and what we should be talking about with Ashley Mitchell & Char Willingham.

Physical Practice: Vinyasa Flow with Franny Diaz & Sound Bath with Char Willingham

Ashley Mitchell  is the founder of ‘Courage Campaign’, featured by NBC in “Black fitness stars who use their platforms to educate’, and named one of “5 Black women making the fitness scene more inclusive”.

Char Willingham is the Director of the Prenatal School at Down Under and a member of its Teacher Leadership Council.

Franny Diaz is a lead teacher with Down Under and helped create many of the inclusivity initiatives that underpin Down Under’s racial justice work and inclusive programming.


This 8-week Series combines education, movement, discussion, and collaborative dialogue aimed at understanding our individual and collective potential within a sociopolitical context. While we as a faculty are specifically inviting any and all BIPOC and Gender Diverse Folxs, all are welcomed in this collaborative learning space!

This event will be in-person while simultaneously live-streamed. Virtual space is unlimited. The physical space is limited.

Every session is 90 minutes: 30 min of education followed by a 60 min physical practice.


Donations are welcomed to support our ability to offer this again, inviting other speakers, all at no cost to the public.
