Meditative Arts: Praxis

As a practitioner-scholar, Naya practices + researches meditative arts with Black and other communities of color. Since 2008, she’s facilitated meditation and ceremony as owner of Rootwork, a holistic private practice grounded in Black Diaspora and other “rooted” healingways.

In addition to on-going learning with community elders, Naya is certified in trauma-informed yoga and Overcoming Anxiety facilitation from Sundara Yoga Therapy. She is a Master-Level Reiki practitioner.

For related meditative arts research, Naya explores the social, embodied, and spatial impacts of racial and ancestral trauma; mindfulness meditation with Latinx populations (with Liz Cotter); and meditative inquiry with Black populations.
