Meet Joe T, demonstrating yoga in every way
Here at Inner Space Yoga we want to inspire people to practice yoga by offering examples of real people using our products. We also want to inspire people by sharing stories of real people demonstrating yoga philosophies in their daily lives.
Therefore we are excited to introduce you to Joseph Tolbert Jr., our new demonstrator for our Pose of the Week blog. We will also be sharing short InnerViews with him, to be shared on our blog and to demonstrate how he lives his yoga through his work merging art, culture, spirituality, and social justice.
A minister, scholar, writer and cultural organizer, Joe T. is the Founder of Art at the Intersections, a creative consultancy and arts and culture incubator that promotes cultural equity. He is also also the Arts, Culture and Movement Resiliency Program Coordinator at Peoples Hub, an online training organization founded on the belief that, when people at the grassroots build power, we can change our world.
Like so many people during Covid, Joe T began practicing yoga on-line, and participating in classes with Yoga with Adriene. When he came to demonstrate for us, he instantly loved our products and said, “It is true that you don’t know what you don’t know, and I didn’t know how much my yoga practice needed some bolsters… the poses that gave me great discomfort were made more accessible to my body’s needs.”
Check out the Pose of the Week blog throughout this Spring, featuring Joseph Tolbert Jr. And, watch for our InnerViews with him coming soon!
