I have decided to take myself

“Off The Grid” for 12  months.


I am dedicated to learning who my children are at this moment.

Developing and learning who I have grown to be.

Studying with spiritual leaders, mentors and shamans translating

this knowledge into what I need to know and implementing what I learn into my everyday life. 


Without Social Media! Without Being Accessible! Without Yoga N Da Hood!



Before I go “Off The Grid” I wanna see you!

Before the Pandemic when use to have so much fun connecting in community at

classes, schools, workshops, conferences, the club…


I’ve really missed our exchange of energy.

And if you haven’t had the opportunity to hang out with the Ghetto  Guru come on then!

Namaste Beautiful People!

My name is Ebony Smith; "The Ghetto Guru" certified Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor and Wellness Coach.

Born and raised in the inner cities of Dallas, Texas! I grew up with a secret eating away at my soul. And we all know…secrets are the perfect recipe for a very turbulent childhood. 

I was molested by a woman in the neighborhood at a young age, I grew up in silences. Unable to express how I felt, lacking self regulation skills. In turn, is the “the bad”. 

I became very disenchanted with school. My cry for help showed up in the form of misbehaving and being disruptive, it created the attention I longed for.

 I spent most of my time suspended or in my regular seat in what they call ISS (In House Suspension), “kid jail”.

I became very rebellious, lacking the skills to make choices that would serve my life in positive manner. These poor decision making skills tainted my life well into adulthood. I became an alcoholic, downing my sorrows in vodka.

At the age of 29, after being married to a man I didn’t even know, looking for love in all the wrong places. I found out I was pregnant with my 1st child Zoe. Wanting to have a natural child birth, my Douala advised me to start practicing Yoga.


My soul was awakened the 1st time I stepped on the mat; my heart began the healing process. For the 1st time I was discovering who I was and who I could be.  I grow in this knowing every day. 

My life changing experience with the practice of Yoga compelled me to create Yoga N Da Hood 501(c)3 nonprofit,  wellness outreach organization that teaches people in under-served communities  the art of self healing, self talk and self love through the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness. We offer free Yoga and Meditation classes in a hood near you.  Our mission is to equip individuals with the tools to empower their own life.
