Joshua Bee Alafia’s meditation practice began in 1989 when his mother gave him a mantra (an empowering statement that is recited internally) to work with. This sparked a rich journey through many different meditation styles from the Hawaiian Shamanic, Hindu, Sufi, Dzogchen, Taoist, and finally, Vipassana traditions. After realizing the transformative power of meditation practice in his own life, Joshua determined he'd bring it to the youth. He began teaching mindfulness meditation to incarcerated, court involved and system vulnerable youth through New York’s Lineage Project in 2010. He is a graduate of the Community Dharma Leaders training through Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Joshua is a recent Chicago transplant and is currently teaching Insight meditation at the Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative on the South Side of Chicago.
TaoYoga ArtsTM is a Taoist practice that incorporates mindful movement, breath work, visualization and meditation. Joshua's approach to teaching this practice, is informed by his Yoruba and Buddhist training. Haji Healing Salon is delighted to offer Joshua a new Chicago home, where he will share his inspired healing art.
Join us in welcoming Joshua, who is a senior teacher in this tradition, to Chicago AND to Haji Healing Salon, by reserving your cushion for his Tuesday night meditation class. Each class incorporates a period of movement, guided meditation and a conversation about the practice. We gather from 7pm-830pm. $10.00
Featuring complimentary Zen Blend tea by Oh So Medicinal

Please bring yourSELF, your mat, a towel (if you sweat with moderate practice) and your open heart.

Our BEGINNER + BEYOND class is led by Sabrina Ewell (@sereneradianceyoga), a dedicated yogi who not only “talks the talk”, but “walks the walk” and lives her life on and through the yoga path. Sabrina ( a life-long south-sider) brings her Hatha Yoga practice to Haji Healing Salon in support of south side Chicago’s ability to THRIVE through dedicated practice.
HATHA YOGA is the Mother of all Yoga styles and is characterized by a longer time spent holding postures. Time to refine the pose and understand the alignment is necessary and very helpful for beginners. This style is great for absolute beginners and anyone looking to slow down and STAY through challenge in the body and the mind, while cultivating a deep breath practice that supports you through it all. Sabrina coined the title “Beginner and BEYOND” for this class and it is more than appropriate. Yogis at all levels will appreciate this practice. Hatha Yoga with Sabrina Ewell is offered Monday and Wednesday nights at 6:30pm

Yoga is a powerful way to build a beautiful, new relationship with your body. Although group classes can be far more accessible, one-on-one, with a qualified teacher is the best way to learn this intimate practice. We keep our private rates low and offer special incentive packages to encourage you to take full advantage of the opportunity to deepen your experience in this way.
A 15-minute consultation is included in your first session. Aya will customize a private practice that can include yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, yoga nidra (sleep meditation) and cold-pressed juice.
Consider the following benefits of private practice:
- You are supported in making space in your life for a healthful, life-affirming practice.
- You gain a firm foundation to build on and move with confidence into a classroom environment.
- You understand how to articulate each posture with modifications that are appropriate for your body.
- A new awareness of your body, a new sensitivity and reverence for yourself develops and inspires you to stay on the path.
- You get to enjoy a supportive and affirming new relationship in your life that is centered around increasing aliveness and radiating health!
- Look forward to being guided through a weekly, or monthly breath-centered practice of mindful movement, modified specifically to suit the needs of YOUR body.
Reserve a private session with Aya and enjoy having a safe space to grow into your yoga and yourSELF.
