Yoga For Everyone Workshops

Yoga For Everyone Workshops

Yoga, Social Justice, Body Image and Anti-Racism

Let's Finally Bridge the Cultural Divides That Keep Us Segregated

Explore new ways of making yoga an inclusive practice for everyone. In this series of interactive online workshops, you’ll learn how to deconstruct the values, norms, and perceptions that guide the current western view of yoga, beauty, and success. We will explore these poignant topics through in-depth, open forum discussions, practical hands-on asana labs, and interactive yoga practices. 

By the end of this series, you’ll be able to create inclusive spaces where all bodies are invited to participate in socially conscious yoga classes. As we work to redefine your body image, you’ll reclaim your personal power. Then, we will learn to serve the collective community by cultivating important allyship stills for underserved and underestimated communities.


An introduction to yoga, diversity and body image

Module 1 is an engaging conversation that delves into the topics of yoga, diversity and body image. This discussion provides a solid foundation for the in-depth explorations that follow in later modules.

Topics include:

  • What is diversity in yoga and who gets to define it?
  • Anti Black racism
  • Why are some bodies deemed more valuable than others?
  • The intersection of yoga, body image, race and discrimination: how do we shift the paradigm?
  • Perceptions of yoga in the media.
  • Strategies that combat the “yoga body” narrative.
  • Engaging underserved communities: How do we invite others to the practice?
  • Creating accessible and empowering asana


Redefining Your Understanding - Racism and You

In the second module, we unpack social messaging and socialization around body image using practical methods and strategies that you can easily employ in everyday life. You will learn how to reclaim a more powerful understanding of who you are and how you show up in the world. You will leave this interactive discussion and asana practice with actionable tools that will help you take your yoga off the mat and into your community.

Are you a bigot? What are your biases?

  • The power of language and socialized conditioning
  • Connecting and enhancing our core values
  • What it means to be a good ally and how to step into social justice spaces
  • Unpacking our own bias: why do we believe the things we believe?

This workshop is perfect for students, health practitioners, and wellness coaches who need a boost in their self-care routine.
