20% of proceeds go towards the first Diabadass grant to the black artist and musician Qiana Drew. She spreads ripples of hope in our community through her voice - collaborating in the past with names like Missy Elliot and appearing on the Hollywood stage for American Idol. Diabadass has set a goal to award a $1,000 grant to help Qiana produce an album for the diabetes community.

If you are like me (it's Erik here), then sometimes you feel alone in a class.

You know that diabetes bag we sneak into class? All of our life-saving supplies are hidden for that just-in-case situation with quick glances at the phone to check blood sugars, a fast snack to keep going while preventing a low, or a moment pause to check blood sugars.

Diabadass instructors are like you and me. All of them are impacted by diabetes - directly having it or having a close tie.

You'll see Mia's pump tubing as she stretches and folds. You'll hear beeps and alarms. That is the beauty of it.

Diabetes is what makes us badasses. We do this yoga session together because of this disease. We are stronger together because we are all going through this as one.

The next step is having you join a class.
