[Live Streamed] Skill In Action: Yoga + Social Justice with Michelle C. Johnson
June 7 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $25 – $35
Social justice and creating change is at the heart of the practice of yoga. Through the practice of yoga we are invited to experience personal transformation that at best will allow us to be more effective in creating change in the world for the greater good. We are in a time in a world where we need to turn towards one another to create collective change. In this session space will be created for you to explore the principles of yoga and the principles of justice to inspire you to use your practice of yoga to create a just world for yourself and all beings. We will explore: power and privilege, oppression and identity, suffering and liberation and loving kindness. Participants will use the tools of asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath work), meditation; teachings from the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras; discussion and individual reflection to delve deeper into the interplay of yoga and social justice. This all-levels yoga workshop will include a dharma talk, meditation, asana, and discussion.
Date & Time: Jun. 7th @12pm-3pm
*Please pay at appropriate level; scholarships available
About the instructor: Michelle C. Johnson
I am an author, yoga teacher, social justice activist, licensed clinical social worker and Dismantling Racism trainer. I approach my life and work from a place of empowerment, embodiment and integration. With a deep understanding of trauma and the impact that it has on the mind, body, spirit and heart, much of my work focuses on helping people better understand how power and privilege operate in their life. I explore how privilege, power and oppression affects the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and energy body.
