CE Workshop | Creating Inclusive Yoga Spaces, Part 2: Bias, Power, and Privilege in Yoga

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. In part 2, we explore our positions within some of the power structures that exist in yoga. Discussion topics include: · Gender Identity, orientation, and ableism · Addressing bias, power, and privilege · Intersectionality
