About This Workshop
The ancient practices of yoga offer a pathway to personal liberation, but how do we apply these teachings in the modern world? In this workshop we’ll consider how we can apply the lessons of yoga to our contemporary lives in the context of social justice and the movement toward equity. The teachings of yoga offer tools for cultivating a healthy inner relationship, which allows us to navigate the challenges of life such as failure, illness, and death. Jivana Heyman (E-RYT 500, YACEP, C-IAYT) explores the impact this inner journey can have on our greater community experience as he expands on lessons shared in his new book, Yoga Revolution: Building a Practice of Courage & Compassion.
