CE Workshop | Creating Inclusive Yoga Spaces, Part 3: Best Practices in Yoga Classes

Aisha Yusuf

Creating an inclusive space in yoga means that all feel welcome to the practice, regardless of race, gender, or physical ability. Fostering this environment requires intentional action, including self-reflection and openness to unlearning many societal assumptions.

We've partnered with The Driven Yogi for this three-part series, hosted by The Driven Yogi Founder and Emmy Award-winning journalist Keisha Courtney (E-RYT 500). She's joined by Aisha Yusuf (E-RYT-200), an executive leader in social justice reform and Teacher Trainer at The Driven Yogi. This series of workshops introduces the critical work of creating more inclusive yoga spaces for people from marginalized communities. The final part of this series ties together what we’ve learned to provide best practices to cultivate a truly inclusive yoga class.

Discussion topics include:

· Intersectionality
· Avoiding common microaggressions
· Best practices in classes and studio spaces

In the United States, 28.8 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical health conditions that can affect people of all genders, ages, race and ethnicities, body shapes, and weights.
