Yoga for Neurodivergent Folx


Yoga for Neurodivergent Folx with Candice Baldwin


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.

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.

This will be a somatically based learning environment. Yes, there will be slides (lol) but space and time will be given to experience an approach to yoga 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 space for connection and discussion.
