Yoga can be an amazing art and science of both personal and
social change and liberation. Come explore connections between
yogic principles, non-violent communication techniques, implicit
bias, partner work and physical adjustments to help us interrogate
and build more just and inclusive communities.

-Introduction to implicit bias,
-Best practices for inclusive yoga spaces,
