Yamas & Niyamas in Social Justice
A free, online workshop with Anjali Rao
Yoga philosophy offers us a solid framework for personal and collective transformation.
In this free mini-workshop, we'll focus on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, which espouses the yamas and niyamas as a foundation for building an environment for yoga practitioners to thrive.
Together we'll explore:
- The practice and cultivation of a code of ethics through the lens of the yamas and niyamas
- How ahimsa, or non-harming, invites us to regulate our individual behavior and moral conduct
- The ways in which each of the yamas and niyamas relates to our work as activists and advocates for social justice and equity
Join us for this free mini-workshop and you'll also learn more about Anjali's upcoming course, Yoga & Activism: A Blueprint for Collective Transformation, which begins June 20th.
Date: Sunday, June 13th
Time: 2pm-3:30pm Pacific // 5pm-6:30pm Eastern
Location: Live online via Zoom
