$45.00 Grief Chronicles with Reggie Hubbard


Mainstream notions of yoga practice center around "Love and Light" or "Good Vibes Only" which are neither sufficient for the moment we find ourselves in nor in keeping with the reality of life.  And even beyond mainstream yoga, our culture pushes aside grief, sadness and disappointment - alienating us from one another and from the fullness of lived experience.

Grief, sadness and disappointment are unavoidable and essential parts of the human experience - gateways to deeper love, compassion, wisdom and gratitude.  This workshop will use light asana, meditation, singing bowl sound, and sangha to create sacred space for all of the grief we have been holding silently for the past several years, tapping into the energy of spring and the blessing of community to normalize the expression of grief and hold space for one another.  The way forward is through our present suffering together, not alone.



Reggie Hubbard

Reggie's yoga and meditation journey was born of curiosity and compassionate invitation by dear friends, forged in adversity, and has become a lesson in surrender to the miracles that exist in commitment to personal peace and wellbeing. Adopting yogic discipline and practices has saved his life and he is committed to sharing these practices far and wide to help others - regardless of their race, gender, identity, orientation or economic status. Over the course of his practice, he has studied extensively with leading teachers such as Faith Hunter, Amy Ippolitti, Yogarupa Rod Stryker as well as many amazing teachers along the way - ever mindful that the best teacher is the eternal student.

Reggie is a 500 hour certified yoga teacher and the founder/Chief Serving Officer of Active Peace Yoga. Through Active Peace Yoga, he offers asana and meditation classes to help others nurture peace of mind, creativity, equanimity in spirit and physical health. The mission of Active Peace Yoga is to serve all communities, all practice levels and lifestyles by helping people nurture foundational habits of self-care, rather than viewing wellness as an afterthought. He has authored a thesis entitled, "Yoga and Spiritual Activism: Serving Humanity from a Sense of Devotion and Love" and been a featured speaker on racial justice and civic engagement for the Hanuman Academy, Yoga Alliance, Upaya Zen Center and various other platforms.

In July 2020, Reggie helped launch a grassroots campaign along with David Lipsius, Amy Ippoliti, Jack Kornfeld and Tara Brach called Buddhists and Yogins United. This was an effort to share information and inspire teachers and their respective communities to encourage active civic participation in the 2020 election and beyond. In addition to his yoga teaching practice, Reggie has held many senior strategic and logistical roles across a variety of fields, ranging from global marketing, digital and community organizing, government relations, international education to Presidential campaigning. He currently serves as a leading progressive political strategist, regularly interacting with elected officials on Capitol Hill and managing relationships, impact and communications among the broader progressive movement.

Reggie has taught Members of Congress, Congressional Staff, leading progressive organizations and individuals from all walks of life. Reggie's dharma sits at the intersection of bringing more peace and balance to activists AND to guiding the wellness community toward being more engaged, concerned citizens. Achieving this balance is how we catalyze transformative change in our society, which we are desperately in need of at this moment. The times require our courageous, active engagement in social change - we must move beyond talk toward inspired action, especially among the yoga community and others who seek to alleviate suffering in the world.
