About This Event
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are critical to understanding various perspectives and building personal development and community growth. The first step to building a community that fosters DEI is creating strong principles and delivering powerful and helpful information that can lead to increased risk awareness and greater compassion. By allowing each individual to find what works for them—and by bringing those experiences together using a rigorous framework—so many more people have the opportunity to find out how yoga can benefit their life. In this class, presenters discuss this central topic and share individual offerings and experiences.
