Taking a barre or yoga class with Regina of Wolf Medicine Magic is grounding. The Brooklyn-based instructor is strong, and she inspires class participants to tap into that strength, both physically and emotionally. Regina, who prefers to use just her first name, hustled to create her yoga-Ayurveda-breathwork business that travels to different studios, Wolf Medicine Magic, after graduating with a BFA Arizona State University in dance in 2004.
Since then, her business has swelled. She leads breathwork workshops specifically for people of color or focused on releasing trauma from toxic masculinity. She also offers Ayurvedic mentoring and teaches yoga and barre classes at several Brooklyn studios.
