Abiola Akanni, the creator of Trap Vinyasa™, is not your average yogi. Biola, as she prefers to be called, dedicates her life to rewriting unhealthy body narratives and cultivating inclusive wellness spaces. Her vision is the result of her own life’s story, one in which she was able to transmute trauma “combining the storytelling power of hip hop with the healing nature of yoga.”
