Dre Drummond

"My duty as a healing artist is to go where others cannot or will not, to tell the stories that are being ignored and to reclaim the culture and identity of people of color. I feel called to decolonize many yoga spaces, festivals, conferences, and spiritual institutions.

My hope is to be a part of the change I want to see, not only within the lineage of my family but, in the world we all inhabit. From a young age, I quickly realized that I felt an innate desire to speak up and show the strength of my beliefs. As I found different ways to do this, I discovered therapy within the art of dance and Yoga. Becoming a yoga teacher in 2018 I’ve earned over 300 RYT hours in Vinyasa and Traditional Hot while participating in workshops including Yoga Activism, Decolonizing Yoga Spaces, Finding Your Yogic Voice, and various Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Seminars. My dance training includes The Ailey school, University North Carolina School of the Arts (B.F.A) , Jacob's Pillow and Springboard Danse Montreal. My art is both my protest and my refuge. My introspective approach to yoga and dance has become an accessible vehicle to engage with people, while cultivating radical conversation that weaves the mind, body and spirit."
