Alaiyo is another one of the unique black-owned companies on our list. African American business owner, Jasai, is the inspiration behind the brand. She is a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and author of The New FastGirls. She is also a mindfulness facilitator, which means she teaches people how to be with what is, precisely as it is. Her focus is on clarity, grace, and compassion. Jasai uses tools of refraining, including fasting, silence, and stillness, to illuminate the truth. Being connected to the present moment is the only real and lasting freedom available to us all. She has recently added the art and practice of waist bead wearing to her toolkit. Waist beads provide women with the opportunity to reconnect to their center. They help women rediscover their endless reservoirs of beauty, power, balance, and being.
