Study with Jacoby about the intersection of yoga and justice here:
Bending Towards Justice Diversity Training for Yoga Teachers
In this 2-8 hour workshop we examine the ways in which injustice insidiously enters yoga studios, retreats and trainings and how as teachers and practitioners, we can unknowingly perpetuate the oppression of our society in ways that include: racism, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, ableism, and ageism.
In this supportive and judgment-free environment, we will take a look at ourselves and what brings us to this work, and reflect on what our life experiences allow us to see or not to see, in the world and in our yoga classes. We will learn some techniques and strategies to create equitable, diverse classrooms, while also learning to hold space for the pain and resilience that we each bring into the room. You will leave empowered with the tools of mindfulness and awareness to recognize oppression, power, and privilege and through a commitment to love, class by class, to change the world to be one of justice and unconditional embrace.
Off the Mat
Building upon the work of the last Beyond Duality series of Off the Mat, Into the World, this series more deeply explores your own skills and knowledge as a yoga teacher and social change agent. This is a training for the yoga teacher with a foundation in service or justice who wants to explore more deeply how to be skillful with students from various backgrounds, how to examine their own patterns and privilege as it arises in the teaching classroom, and how to recognize and work with trauma as it surfaces in yoga students.
