Great inequity and oppression exist in our country. When we are/become aware of this injustice, it can be many things: energizing, painful, activating, disorienting. Yoga can be a place to be present with this understanding, to be engaged with our bodies and hearts and with each other while processing an unveiled reality. We can be both awake and self-nurturing. We can be both peaceful and engaged.
This class will offer a place to marry your desire for justice with your yoga practice. We will move and breath with a discussion of yogic precepts that support the inner unveiling that social justice work requires. Come nourish and strengthen your body and mind to support your commitment to inner and outer peace.
All levels of yoga practice are welcome. Please bring your own mat if you have one, we will have a limited number to loan out. We will provide all other props.
All are welcome in this class, but please note that 8 Limbs Capitol Hill is on the second floor with stairwell access.
