What does it look like to be an anti-racist yogi in the United States? As a POC-centered and community-centered yoga space in a majority people of color city, owners and teachers at IYD are persistent in our conversations around this work. We believe that anti-racism work and yoga need to go hand in hand. The work we do in asana and pranayama needs to show up in the world we are living in off the mat. This weekend's horrific events in #charlottesville saddened and enraged us. We are committed to making IYD a safe space for our community to explore what transformation looks like, not just as individuals, but as a community. @iyengaryogadetroit #repost ・・・#iyengaryoga #yogaismorethanexercise #yogaishealing #yogaistransformation #dismantlingracism
Calling all yogis! Those of you who are devoted to this spiritual practice we need you to connect, support, persist, resist, speak up, be courageous and stand up because complacency and mediocrity cannot be tolerated. Unity must be celebrated! We are the change makers. We can't let #charlottesville define our humanity. Karma is yoga in the form of action. How will you show up to this life? How will you change the world? #Repost @diannebondyyoga ・・・ #persist #resist #changemakers #justiceandloveforall @ybicoalition @pajamaangels @yogadetour @m.t.becker @jsclifestyle @nataliecummingsyoga @yogasteya @yogi_mama_mudita @yoga_international @yogaalliance @embodimentyoga @accessibleyoga @amara_vidya @bodypositiveyoga_ @nikkicookyoga @314yoga @smartassyogi @melmelklein @jivana108 #yogarevolution
#Repost @laureneckstrom ・・・ When there is hate, I will turn to love. When there is disconnection, I will turn to community. When there are unquestioned standards, I will ask both myself and the world the challenging, uncomfortable questions. When there is blame, I will take responsibility for the role I've played, both knowingly and unknowingly. When there is silence, I will speak, even if my voice shakes and I am uncertain or afraid. When others are isolated, attacked or dismissed, I will hold my arms open and not turn a blind eye or run away. Hatred cannot erase hatred but by love alone is healed. In love, in communion, in reconciliation we stand. #thisismyyoga #holisticyogaflow
