Decolonizing Yoga with Channdika Thayver

In this workshop we will explore the ongoing colonization of Yoga in the Western World. This exploration will include discussions about the role that white supremacy, white privilege, white fragility, (lateral) racism, internalized colonialism, cultural (mis/re) appropriation and capitalism have played in the continued colonization of yoga. We will also explore how to address these various systemic oppressions in our individual yoga practices as well as in our roles as facilitators of yoga in studio or class settings.

Yoga Outreach is piloting a sliding scale for fees for this workshop.

There are a limited amount of slots for classes offered at the middle and lower end of the scale. Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities. *Adapted from wortsandcunning.com/blog/sliding-scale
