The Importance of Black Wellness Spaces in Nashville


Nashville Black Wellness Collective is a place where you can be supported in doing the healing work needed to be your best self.


Living through a pandemic, enduring racism, and navigating Music City probably puts wellness, safety, and community near the top of your list of needs.


Identifying those needs and fulfilling them are two different things. Type “Nashville” or “wellness” into your browser or into social media, and you will find countless guides, how-tos, diagrams, tips, and tricks that could be useful for someone on their wellness journey.


But algorithms don’t always give what they need to give! And since the Black experience isn’t centered the media, portrayals of Nashville, or the wellness industry- you will also notice there’s an evident void around Black wellness in Nashville.


Nashville Black Wellness Collective is here to fill that void by offering a wellness-centered community designed by us for us to help Black Tennesseans take their wellness journeys to the next level.


Black residents make up almost a third of Nashville’s growing population, but still lack access to lots of the capital, wellness opportunities, resources, and spaces enjoyed by the majority population.

The experiences and lives of Black Nashvillians deserve


to be more than an afterthought. There is a need for intentional spaces in which Black people can pursue their wellness goals in a supportive and inclusive environment.

Nashville Black Wellness Collective provides a safe space dedicated to the needs of Black people who are seeking to grow in all areas of wellness without fear of judgment, exclusion, or microaggressions.

  1. Physical Wellness: Our healing hikes and outdoor adventures offers a safe and inclusive community for people looking to live an active lifestyle while embracing all that outdoors has to offer.

  2. Mental Wellness: Setting aside time to rest, explore, and be in nature helps relieve stress, enhances our personal connections, and does wonders for our mental health.

  3. Social Wellness: Incorporating wellness activities with a community can be very healing. We are designed to connect, to embrace challenges, and celebrate victories with others. Whether you are a first-time or lifelong hiker, you don’t have to hit the trails alone.

  4. Spiritual Wellness- Meditation is a practice and action. We prioritize mental and physical restoration, and include meditation in all of our activities.


Nashville Black Wellness Collective will now provide even more opportunities for those ready to dive deeper into their healing journeys as we expand our reach to the broader community, members, and Black wellness experts.
