TO LIVE + S.L.A.Y. (SELF-LOVE AND YOGA) WITH TEACHER, ADRIANA ADELE

It was an overcast afternoon, yet still one to appreciate during this new transition into fall, when I went to meet Adriana Adelรฉ for tea and a conversation about her experiences as a yoga instructor. I first came across Adrianaโ€™s work on Instagram during a search to find a yoga studio and instructor to begin practicing with. As a black woman myself, Adrianaโ€™s account was one that instantly stood out to me for connection.

#HEYWECOLLAB ART SERIES BY @DINAFAIRYCAKE + @HEYSHEDRAWS

Magic is made when we collaborate. There's no limit to what we can accomplish through inspiration and creativity, especially when we join forces. Two artists bring this truth to light with a social media-based collaborative art series, #HeyWeCollab. Inspired by each other's art and the work of other creative women, Dina Baez + Nikki Moon linked up to create a #WCW series in which they translate their inspiration from music and feminist values into paintings. Thus far, this project has resulted in unique pieces of artwork reflecting creative women such as Kehlani, SZA, Cardi B and Willow Smith. With #HeyWeCollab Nikki + Dina each create a painting in their own style.
