In this thought-provoking lecture, we will delve into the complex intersections of race, culture, and yoga practice. Theoretical insights will shine a light on the impact of cultural appropriation, racism, and whiteness fragility within yoga spaces. As we navigate these challenging topics, participants will have the opportunity to engage in a vibrant and inclusive discussion round. This interactive session aims to foster a deeper understanding of the issues at hand, encouraging a collective reflection on how we can work towards a more equitable and inclusive yoga community.
