In this episode of Fit & Fierce with Coach Beverly K. Johnson, Coach Beverly introduces her guest, Titus, a yogi who discovered yoga as a means to manage anxiety and deepen his spiritual connection back in 2009. Titus emphasizes the importance of breathwork in achieving mindfulness and finding inner peace. The conversation delves into the challenges men of color face in the yoga community, where representation remains limited despite increasing interest.
Coach Beverly highlights the significance of diverse representation in yoga studios to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. They discuss starting the yoga journey by incorporating breathwork and stillness, and Coach Beverly shares their involvement in the North Alabama Holistic Providers group, which promotes natural alternative healing methods. The two encourage listeners to embrace yoga and breath work as year-round self-care tools and announce an upcoming mindfulness mental health and movement event in Huntsville. Coach Beverly expresses excitement about the emerging community in Huntsville and the dedication of an entire month to men’s health and wellness, featuring notable speakers.
About Coach Bev:
Having been a Zumba instructor for years, Beverly K. Johnson knew her influence included more than fitness training when a candid conversation with an exercising client revealed that women in caretaker roles often forget about themselves. She named her new motivational fitness business Genesys Fitness because it signified a rebirth for the often “forgotten” woman: the divorce’, caretaker, and empty-nester.
The NYC Journal highlighted Beverly in 2022 for being in the Top 30 Female Entrepreneurs to Look Out For. Beverly specializes in creating, educating, and implementing motivational wellness routines into the everyday woman’s life. She has been featured in Sheen Magazine for her article, “Are you Sabotaging Your Wellness Journey?” In this article, she uses her years of experience to educate readers in a relatable way so they can get ahead of their own wellness journey.
