Yoga is recognized as having numerous health benefits but is often practiced in "race-evasive" ways, ones where race, racism, and intersecting injustices are often ignored , in largely white spaces. This donation-based class provides yoga practice that sustains a traditional commitment to yoga's roots while also building in an explicit discussion of recognition and healing from racism and its intersecting oppressions. The * is in recognition that people of color experience intersecting oppressions (e.g. sexism, ableism, cis-heteropatriarchy) that make them even more vulnerable to societal and interpersonal inequities.
