Yoga & Social Justice Training and Conference
Join Jasmine Tarkeshi along with Yoga and Social Justice activists, Dia Penning, ChE, Jackie Sumell and Narayan St Jude over MLK Jr. weekend for a transformative 3 day training that bridges the practices of Yoga with the tenets of Social Justice, Activism and Art.
Based in the fact that the worlds great problems are connected to the split we create, between ourselves and others, this training will bridge the teachings and practices of Yoga with social justice and activism. We will see how we can commit our lives to benefit others, that our personal liberation is bound in the liberation of our brothers and sisters, and explore steps to heal our communities.
This Training will include an exploration of the main themes of Yoga Philosophy and Social Justice through personal inquiry, group discussion, habit exploration and reforming, Asana, Pranayama and Mantra. All in order to to invoke personal change and action, transforming our inner dialogue and outer practices. Together we will create a brave space to look at racism, bias, and privilege systems. Exploring ways of dismantling deeply rooted and systemic cultural conditioning, outlining practical ways in which we can use our practice and teaching to create social change.
Yoga and meditation are often perceived as solely internal, individual practices. Yet these practices can also be undertaken to promote positive social and personal developments that benefit the greater community. The concern for the social welfare of both the world and its people is essential to the practice of Yoga and for the sake of transformation and social justice. Historically, Yoga and meditation have been instrumental in facilitating social change.
This Yoga and Social Justice Training will offer practitioners and teachers an opportunity to explore these various subjects to create change, personally, collectively and sociatally and will include a celebration of Dance, Music and Art to promote awakening
This 20-Hour Training will focus on incorporating these teachings into classes and communities. $350 (20% off for lotus grads) SLIDING SCALE AVAILABLE in exchange for karma yoga during the event! email jasmine | laughinglotus ! com
