Join celebrated yoga teacher and social justice activist, Dianne Bondy, for a workshop series that seeks to make yoga an inclusive practice for all shapes, sizes, and abilities. Through in-depth, open forum discussions, practical hands-on asana labs, and interactive yoga practices, you’ll learn how to deconstruct the values, norms, and perceptions that guide the current western view of yoga, beauty, and success.
Let’s finally bridge the cultural divides that keep us segregated. By the end of this workshop, you’ll learn how to apply the principles and practices of yoga to create inclusive spaces where all bodies are invited to the yoga mat. Learn how to structure accessible yoga classes using socially informed language, innovative modifications, and conscious movements in order to broaden your teaching style to reach individuals that are currently on the sidelines.
This training is open to teachers and students.
