Peaceful Warriors: Radicalizing Yoga for Anti-Racism

Session Leader(s):

Fee: $1,500

Our society is organized in ways that make taking care of ourselves a luxury that only a privileged few can afford or access. This paradigm of self-care as an elite indulgence never worked, but is especially harmful in times when stress levels, physical maladies and emotional suffering are at an all-time high for many. Intersecting health, racial and economic pandemics have tied us up in knots and we need practices that help us release our accumulating tensions. Yoga is one such practice. In this session, participants will stretch into the possibilities, engaging yoga as a tool that helps them learn how to be with the happenings of the world rather than escape from them. They will also respond to journal prompts, experience introspective movement practices and join small group discussions.
