Taught through a social justice lens, students will explore how yoga supports equity, inclusion, and community care inside the classroom and out in the world.

Is this program for you?
This program may be a good fit for you, if you are interested in:
- a deep dive into how yoga can be used as a tool for personal transformation and social change.
- creating more inclusive yoga spaces.
- exploring ways to honour the roots of yoga without appropriating.
This immersive program is rooted in the concept of Sva-dharma, derived from the Sanskrit root dhr, “sustain, support, uphold.”. We believe that each of us has the responsibility to use personal transformation in service of collective transformation. Sva-dharma is one way to use yoga for equity, fairness, inclusion, social justice, and freedom.
