Wellness visionary & inspirational speaker, author of Let Your Fears Make You Fierce, & Founder of The Get Loved Up Community. My core mission is to promote daily self-care, oneness & eco-friendly living.

Hi, I'm Koya

In my 15+ years as a yoga and meditation instructor – I have lost track of the number of times I’ve been the “only,” “the first” or the “token” in a class, event or brand’s marketing initiative. However, in recent years, there has been a movement of more Black and Brown bodies into wellness spaces. Thank God!

As the #1 wellness school for People of Color, Get Loved Up wants to help shine a light on some of the awesome Black wellness experts that are sharing their goodness with the world. Expect new Black Excellence Wellness lists every week as we gather together old favorites and under-the-radar experts who have practices, content, affirmations, and other juicy offerings that will get you loved up!

If you know me, you know that I believe that yoga and meditation are a gateway to living a life that in abundant and full-of-love. That’s why we’re kicking off this week by sharing some of our favorite meditation and yoga instructors. Click each handle to find and follow these amazing humans!
