This workshop is designed to support and hold space for yoga teachers, student yoga teachers, practitioners and yoga studio staff members who self-identify as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Colour, (BIPOC), to speak to our individual and collective experiences in Yoga studio spaces. As BIPOC, we experience intersectional oppression that those who hold varying levels of white privilege do not. As we build and work towards anti-oppressive yoga practices with everyone, this workshop will serve to allow for us to explore what support we need from our spaces and each other to share our practices as our whole selves. We will have an opportunity to use various methods of connection with each other that are grounded in mutual care, honesty and our lived experiences. This workshop will discuss topics on race, racism, white supremacy and how we have and can navigate that with our colleagues. It will also focus on our collective resilience and how we can resist and care for ourselves in spaces that cause harm. Together we will address the issues, acknowledge and honour our experiences, while also collaborating on building and sharing tools to cope and challenge the ongoing white supremacy and racial trauma that exists in practice spaces. Workshop participants will learn and share different tools and strategies for addressing issues, identifying micro-aggressions, advocating for support structures within yoga spaces and tools on healing personal and collective racial trauma through body and breath work.
