Why Reclamation and Renewal?

Kimberlee and Serina have experienced, first hand, the effects of toxic culture and whiteness (white supremacy) on the mat, in the studio, and in life. Sometimes racism within a yoga space is subtle and may show up as simple as you being the only person of color. Or maybe you are the only one with your body shape. You may not even realize why you feel excluded from the space. This workshop is for any woman of color who has ever felt excluded, bypassed, or simply ignored on the mat.

**In this 4-hour workshop, we’ll use the tools of self-inquiry and contemplation, to explore the impact of the systems of oppression and privilege on our experiences within the yoga community. This practice will include a discussion about how these systems show up in our lives, healing meditation, and restorative yoga practice.

You’ll leave with a renewed spirit and a deep knowing that you have the right to create a safe space for yourself through the practice of yoga, armed with yoga tools you can use to combat oppression in the world, and cultivate inclusive yoga communities.**
