RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh is the first stop for a new pop-up tour called The Melanated Yoga Experience, an event that aims to support Black-owned businesses and bolster health, wellness and stress relief.

The Melanated Yoga Experience on March 11 at 420 Hubert St. is the dream of Diamond Young, a North Carolina A&T graduate and founder of BLK Directory, a nonprofit that supports Black entrepreneurs by connecting them with fellow business owners and new clients.
