A Diversity and Inclusion Series with Susanna Barkataki
This course is for you, if you:
Are looking for ways to live yoga “off the mat” and beyond the physical asana practice while putting yogic philosophy, principles, and ethics in action so you can create a life where you feel more whole and connected to yourself, the world, and the people around you.
Want to honor the roots of yoga without culturally appropriating and learn how to use your yoga practice as a means of lessening harm locally and globally.
Want to deepen your understanding of the Yamas and Niyamas (yoga philosophy/ethics and morals) and learn ways to embody yogic values in your daily life.
Want to feel confident in holding space for uncomfortable or challenging, but important, conversations, not only in daily life, but also in relation to yoga and social justice.
Want a better understanding of power dynamics, forms of oppression, and privileges that show up both on and off the mat.
Want to understand the different types of trauma and how healing can place within oppressive systems using yoga.
Are ready to explore your own personal roles and identities in a way that can help make yoga and society more equitable for all.
Susanna will guide you through 6 different modules, with self-paced video lessons and audio meditations.
Learn the history of yoga, yogic philosophy, and how the Yamas and Niyamas (yoga's ethics and morals) apply to the realm of social justice, cultural appropriation, power, oppression, diversity, and more!
Listen to accompanying guided meditations led by Susanna to help you stay grounded, present, and open-hearted throughout sometimes challenging subjects.
Take time to integrate this course into your daily life and put each lesson into practice with reflective journaling prompts.
Susanna Barkataki is a teacher, inclusivity promoter, and a powerful yoga culture advocate. She believes in a world where yoga supports us in dissolving separation and creating unity.
