cultural-competency-yoga-workshop-seattle-8-limbs

You are invited to a workshop for yoga teachers, yoga studio owners and yoga studio staff to build our foundations in cultural competency and awareness of cultural bias. This workshop with Caprice Hollins will help to develop participants’ cultural competence by:

  • Providing a framework on how to address issues of equity and race.
  • Creating common language for entering into discourse.

The framework takes a look at deepening awareness of self—moving from color blindness to racial cognizance; increasing knowledge of others and their experiences of racism and oppression; developing skills to work effectively across cultures; and advocating and taking action to initiate change.
This workshop has been generously financially sponsored by the following yoga studios:

  • 8 Limbs Yoga Centers
  • Be Luminous Yoga
  • Lotus Yoga
  • Rainier Beach Yoga
  • Twist Yoga
  • Two Dogs Yoga

Other studio staff, teachers and owners are invited to participate. Those not connected to host studios are encouraged to make a sliding scale donation to go towards future trainings. Free or by donation towards future trainings: cash or checks made to Rainier Beach Yoga. Sorry, no credit card donations.
