Who should take this online yoga workshop?

This workshop is for anyone wishing to receive resources and tools to go deeper and broaden their understanding of neurodivergence. We will explore how to “de-ableize” your yoga practice, your worldview and the space you hold for students, clients and community.

The politics of neurodivergence

Colonialism perpetuates an ableist view of mental health. This perspective permeates contemporary western yoga classes making them unsafe spaces for neurodivergent folx. Research into neurodivergence (the presence, or grouping, of less-typical, cognitive variations) is also rooted in a patriarchal worldview which enforces a gap in understanding experiences like autism.

Learning methods

This will be a somatically based learning environment. Yes, there will be slides (LOL), but Candice will also provide time to experience her unique approach to yoga – one that makes space for people who experience the world in such a way that they are diagnosed as living with autism, ADD/HD, sensory processing disorder, bipolar, depression, anxiety, etc.

There will be time for connection and discussion.
