Sadly, being a 'good person' isn't enough to reverse systemic racism. There is plenty you can do! Use the peace and strength you've found through yoga to embolden your commitment to racial justice.

For decades people of color have dedicated their lives to ending racism. Now as white folks, it's time to step up and join the work.

We are being called to take action toward building an equitable and just society for all people. This is only possible if we do the real work of looking within, and acknowledging our complicity in systemic racism. Join this discussion covering some of the key practices necessary for dismantling white supremacy.

As we face into, accept, and understand how our history and perceptions shape our present world, we can begin to do the essential inner work required to build a fair system that truly honors humanity. You have the power to create change, and now is the time to put your heartfelt intention into action.

You will go home empowered with information and simple practices that will support you in transforming yourself and our world.

** This is not an asana practice.**
