About This Workshop
There’s a lot of current conversation in our country about who has privilege and who benefits or suffers from both overt and subtle systems of oppression. But how and why does this apply in a yoga setting? In this workshop, we draw on the Five Faces of Oppression model to discuss how power dynamics affect access to yoga, and how you can step forth as a leader to create diverse, equitable, and brave yoga spaces and empower yourself and others.
