A radical and interactive inquiry about the use of Yoga and embodied practices as a form of Social Justice & community building. This one day gathering will focus on racial justice and the power of Mindfulness and Yoga to create a safe and brave space for real talk, an acknowledgement of historical wounds and traumas, our inter-connectedness, the courage and compassion to heal and the need to
re-imagine and consciously build our communities.
We will explore what it means to be an Ally & Co-Conspirator, how we are all impacted by both systematic and internalized oppression and the use of embodied practices to create radical change. This workshop is open to all regardless of Yoga experience.
