African-American Kundalini Yogis consider access to yoga to be a civil rights issue.

Intersectionality is where multiple external systems of discrimination and internalized oppression intersect, interact and force multiply.What we call social justice and civil rights struggle, has a millennia long history and praxis, rooted in cultures of tradition. If we explore the civil rights/social justice movement through our understanding of yoga; the inner warrior for social change emerges.

Self-care is a key element in liberation of self and others. 

If asana means “comfortable seat”, and many asana’s are uncomfortable in the beginning, but get comfortable with practice, so grows your skill in engaging systems of oppression.

As a yoga professional, can you access the muscles for embodied resistance? It is a Siddhi or spiritual power to see privilege, to see oppression and then to take action to bring real change. Deepen into your ability to see & untangle the knots of systemic racism, class oppression and move yoga into accessibility for all.

On the mat, we’ll use yoga and meditation to build resilience. Off the mat, we’ll discuss ways to culturally recover, transform and evolve beyond layers of implicit and explicit biases.

This course is one possibility to join the movement for social change and greater accessibility of yoga for all. Learn to evolve your platform to inform sensitivity across all intersections and to move this world into truth & justice for all.
