Does Yoga Support Social Justice Work? No and Yes.
Limited Capacity seats available

The Bhagavad Gita was the favourite book of both Gandhi and his assassin. European fascist movements of the 1930s were fascinated with yoga. And even today, practicing yoga is not a reliable predictor of one's political persuasion. The Yoga Sutras will not teach you about reproductive rights, rape culture or white privilege. The Hatha Yoga texts are in no way feminist. Therefore, is it a mistake to believe that practicing yoga makes you a better citizen, or ally? In this discussion we'll explore how social justice work really begins with education that comes from beyond the yoga mat. And, how those who are working within the social justice movement really can trust yoga practice to help build resilience.
