By @beautybyaliajay “In preparation for my rebranding, site launch, and launch of my free morning yoga classes; I will undergo a mental, nutritional, and physical detox to clear my body mind and spirit so that I can operate on my highest vibration.  I am showcasing some awesome twisting #asanas that will assist in pulling, pushing, and turning your body and organs to release waste products such as, lactic acid, lymphatic fluid, and carbon dioxide. Additionally, incorporating #yogic breathing by elongating the #breath and fully inflating the lungs, allows you to take in an extended amount of oxygen that your body commonly doesn’t receive because of shallow breathing.  Allow these twisting #postures to offer you a mental #detox by only concentrating on the breath and balance. Release #toxic thoughts and habits that inhibit you from reaching your #highest #self. #Namaste 🌸

The Yoruba Diaspora in the Atlantic World by Toyin Falola
This innovative anthology focuses on the enslavement, middle passage, American experience, and return to Africa of a single cultural group, the Yoruba. Moving beyond descriptions of generic African experiences, this anthology will allow students to trace the experiences of one cultural group throughout the cycle of the slave experience in the Americas. The 19 essays, employing a variety of disciplinary perspectives, provide a detailed study of how the Yoruba were integrated into the Atlantic world through the slave trade and slavery, the transformations of Yoruba identities and culture, and the strategies for resistance employed by the Yoruba in the New World.
