    Yoga was originally taught and practiced as a tool for spiritual growth, as a way to integrate the spiritual self with the physical self. Its origins come from indigenous people with roots in India and Africa. Black people have a rich history of spiritual and healing practices that support health, resilience, and well-being that are compatible with yoga philosophy and practice. Yoga In the Black Community: Healing Practices and Principles offers a well-documented and comprehensive overview of these practices and gives voice to the presence of Blacks within the yoga community. A must read.
