Harnessing Our Power for the Collective Good: A Skill in Action 3-hour Workshop

-

Join Skill in Action facilitators, Raudhah Rahman (dia/she/her) and Lauren Roberts (she/her) as they host this 3-hr workshop designed to deepen your awareness of the various identities you embody, cultural conditioning and its impact on you and others, and how systems of power affect our well-being. In this workshop through asana, meditation, and discussion you will explore how you can harness your individual power and our collective power to make social change. Through the practice of yoga and meditation, we will connect with our inner fire, agni, to gain clarity about our actions and their alignment with our higher purpose, all in-service of our collective humanity. You will leave this workshop with a deeper connection to self, your community and all beings. This all-levels yoga workshop will include a dharma talk, meditation, asana, and discussion.

This workshop is a part of our  200hr Summer Immersion Yoga Teacher Training that we are opening up to the public. This workshop will be held on Zoom!
