Raylá Meshawn


Artist. Alternative Healer. Educator

Raylá's mother taught them West African folk dances starting at age 2. They majored in dance at the School of the Arts in Rochester, N.Y., and completed their bachelor's degree in sociology and psychology at Howard University. Following undergrad, Raylá began rape crisis counseling and using wellness education to advocate for healing justice in low wealth communities. They feel like all people regardless of their intersections should have the right to heal. They completed their 200 hr Yoga RYS certification with Yoga 4 A Good Hood and has since furthered their studies into neurosomatic meditation, trauma-informed restorative yoga, and sexual health. Their main practice is embodied movement and mindfulness

emphasizing the sensual as a tool to enter the body.
