HEY, I'M COHBE
I am a 200 hour registered yoga teacher based in D.C. and lead classes in Philly, Turks & Caicos, Atlanta, NY, Puerto Rico and now thanks to this virtual space, anywhere & everywhere!
I'm honored to be able to offer the tools & techniques of yoga with a little touch of Cohbe. A space where you can feel included, have fun, be yourself and be one of the omies.

I hope you know how much it means to me that you're here! As someone who's yoga journey started off of Youtube in 2015 this feels like a full circle moment.
My passion for yoga came in 2017 when I completed my teacher training and Co-founded Vibes & Vinyasa, an all inclusive yoga tribe based in Philly, PA. Traveling to different cities and teaching at some of the top studios throughout Philadelphia I noticed there was hardly any people of color or full figured bodies in my classes. Through V&V I was able to provide what I felt was missing in the yoga world, diverse and inclusive spaces for every and anybody to practice.
I've partnered with corporate establishments such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Princeton University, Temple University, and Haverford College to provide curated programs for Black Employee Networks, LGBTQAI+ communities, Women in the Workforce, and other marginalized populations.
My classes are often filled with my favorite hip hop and afrobeats songs, laughter, and corny jokes. The more I teach the more I realize how important it is not only to provide access, but to provide acknowledgment of the diverse populations and their realities in yoga classes.
It's no secret that modern day yoga has strayed from it's humble philosophical origins to a more performative practice of strength and flexibility. The truth is there is room for it all.
My mission is not only to make yoga accessible but relatable. With class themes of pop culture icons and historic rap beefs I still find ways to weave in the philosophy of yoga. Who knows one day you might find yourself in a split, able to touch our toes, or a handstand if you want.
So welcome friends, or as I prefer to call you,
