Stephanie Hicks

Stephanie Hicks, PhD, RYT-200 (she/her) is founder of Yoga for Black Lives, which supports resistance to state-sanctioned violence against Black life by giving people the opportunity to take part in a life-affirming and life-sustaining practice. She teaches in the University of Michigan's Program on Intergroup Relations, where she’s a faculty member.

Stephanie came to the practice of yoga in 2011, hoping it would help her create some stability in her life, and what she found was even greater: a community, a renewed sense of purpose, and the ability to look at herself and others with more grace and compassion and less judgement. She practiced and worked at Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago over the span of five years, and she has practiced and taught restorative, vinyasa flow, and Ashtanga Yoga in various studios around the US and Central America.
