White supremacy’s most effective tool is Divide and Conquer, which causes us to distance from ourselves and others, leaving us split apart both individually and collectively. Dismantling white supremacy requires turning and facing one another. Through the practice of yoga, we can experience a personal transformation that allows us to approach one another with honesty, skill and awareness. In this workshop, we will deepen our understanding of the principles of justice and of yoga, the workings of power and privilege, oppression and identity, suffering and liberation, and loving kindness. In addition, we will discuss what we internalize from living in a white supremacist culture and how these internalizations impact us individually, as people of color, as white people, and as a collective. We will practice asana (postures), meditation, mindfulness, pranayama (breathing), chanting and mantra work as you sharpen goals and visions for your work to change the world. You will also create concrete plans to put your goals into action.
