About the Event

Inclusion recognizes the inherent worth of all people and is both intentional and action-oriented. As a result, inclusive yoga spaces should create and maintain a sense of belonging, and respect the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living of all people.

As yoga teachers we strive to follow the teaching of Ahimsa, or 'do no harm.' If we are actively building this principle into our communities, then we must recognize what is happening in the space that contributes to expulsion with regards to gender, race, socioeconomic access, size, sexual preference and ability. As a result, each yoga teacher, studio owner, and community builder must ask the question, "How do I teach yoga in a way that creates the least amount of harm?"

Please join Carrington Jackson, eRYT-500 for this 10-hour teaching yoga with inclusivity training. The lead yoga practices, self-inquiry, presentations, and group discussion will open your mind and heart to understand that while intention does not always equal impact, the dedication towards a widening of our education, courageous participation, and honest accountability are pillars in building spaces that are truly welcoming to all.

Cost: $180 before 3/13, $195 after 3/13
