During the Asheville Yoga Festival in 2017, we began a discussion about the external cultural and political landscape and its intersection with the practice of yoga. Friends, these are dark times that require an even deeper dive into understanding how we got to where we are and what skillful actions we can take in response. No one can escape the effects of white supremacy, patriarchy and capitalism. It is time that yogis mindfully and actively engage in creating justice through the practice of yoga. Radical, Responsive and Ready will inspire you to change. Four yoga practitioners, Kerri Kelly, Chelsea Roberts Jackson, Carrington Jackson and Michelle will engage you in an exploration of the intersection of yoga and social justice. The session will include: a dharma talk, meditation, partner and group work, asana, and breath work. This moment is about you asking yourself to commit to creating a just world through your practice of yoga. We will guide you. Now is the time. Join us.
