“Yoga is for the people by the people. Yoga is a social movement that has easily coopted by capitalism and classism. Remember isms divide us based on power and privilege. No one person deserves Yoga more than any other person. Be wary of huge companies and corporations who want to brand Yoga as an exclusive club. You too deserve Yoga. Yes it is for you. It’s not about fancy poses or expensive sports wear or communities that don’t represent all of us. It’s about finding your breath and standing in your power; connecting with others to take a stand. I have noticed a shift in our culture that has been growing for a while. It’s a widening Precipice were people with money, privilege and power try to silence the voices of people who are doing the work and have less money. This is not Yoga. Things are being taken from us that belong to us. Fight back! Resist! Persist! Speak up. Let’s stand together and remember Yoga is for all of us!” @diannebondyyoga #repost ・・・ #thisiswhatayogilookslike #reclaimingmyspace #yogaforall #yogaandbodyimage #resistpersist @yogasteya @bod@bodypositiveyoga_ @aliciahiggison @melmelklein @ybicoalition @bodypositiveyoga @yoga_international @the_zen_mama @themilitantbaker @nataliecummingsyoga @angela_dawn_yoga

We're so excited to co-host Introduction to Restorative Yoga for Race Based Traumatic Stress Injury© with Gail Parker at @greentreela 2/3/18! Race based stress and trauma are so common in communities of color that we are not always aware of their negative impact on our health and well-being. Yet, race based traumatic stress injury is real and pervasive contributing to anxiety, and levels of distress that compromise overall health and a general sense of well-being. Restorative Yoga is a self-care tool that can help effectively manage the stresses and trauma that arise from the daily-lived experiences of persons of color. In this workshop you will learn: • What Race Based Traumatic Stress Injury is, and how it differs from PTSD • How to identify areas of stress and trauma • How to utilize Restorative Yoga as a self-care tool to effectively manage the stresses and traumas that arise from daily-lived experiences as a person of color • How Restorative Yoga buffers the nervous system, increases resilience, and strengthens your psychological immune system.

What would happen if we changed our perception from 'body image', (viewing ourselves from the outside-in) to embodiment which instead opens us to an experience of our bodies from the ‘inside-out’. "...turn your attention inward – focus on function rather than form, wellbeing rather than weight, embodiment rather than body image. And be especially careful not to tie your perception of your worth or value as a person to your appearance."
