Yoga at the Lake + Social Justice Conversations + Potluck

How are you practicing your yoga off the mat and in the world? Yoga does not exist above or separate from what's going on in the world but asks us to come together and to unite for the common good. It asks us to be present with reality and not detached or distracted.

Have you wanted to engage and connect with other people who are curious about social justice issues? What better way to do this than after an outdoor yoga practice with shared food and beverage as nourishment.

 

The "Yoga by the Lake" summer workshops/gatherings will be held each month this summer (June - August). Each gathering will include an asana practice and engaging discussion on social justice issues of interest to the group. The instructor - social justice activist, One Yoga Lead Teacher, and founder of Bridges Through Yoga, James Orione - will offer a discussion question or prompt and allow dialogue to develop organically from there.

 

These gatherings will take place on the intersection of W 21st St and West Lake of The Isles Parkway. If the weather does not permit an outdoor class we will move to One Yoga at 721 W 26th St.

 

These gatherings are offered in the spirit of dana, or generosity. Donations are welcome.

Yoga and Racial Justice, The Deeper Dive
Mar

1:30 PM13:30

Yoga and Racial Justice, The Deeper Dive

The deeper dive is a continuation of Yoga and Racial justice. This workshop builds on concept of spiritual bypassing and explores how implicit bias and microaggressions impedes the oneness, community building, and connections we seek. 

We will work through these topics by becoming present and embodied through asana, pranayama, and meditation. After our practice we will dive deeper in large and small group conversations, self-study, and action steps that we can integrate into our lives and practice. 

Yoga is about oneness and how we relate and connect to it. The deeper dive explores the concept of svadhyaya (self study) to explore or discover bias and prejudice we hold that is subconscious. When we are not ready or prepared to face these parts of ourselves we have a tendency to meet them with avoidance. Coming to practice yoga and walking out of the door feeling bliss but not really digging into social issues that impact your community and society as a whole.

Yoga and race are connected for many different reasons but one that stands out is truth. The conversation reveals truth(Satya). This truth could present itself in many different ways. I am a person who has experienced/continues to experience racism in my daily life how does this impact me as a yoga practitioner? I am a yoga practitioner who has had limited/no opportunities to discuss race or racial justice where do I start? I am a yoga practitioner and I want to take action. Regardless of where you are on this journey digging deeper in a safe space and viewing this through a yogic lens can be beneficial to all.

Deep Roots Intensive for People of Color

Deep Roots Intensive for People of Color

What would liberation look like without the constraints of oppressive systems? What desires could you manifest in this state of freedom? What would it mean for yourself and your community to love to your deepest roots? How can you move from a place of survival to a place of abundance? How might you connect the way you live with your desires? Deep Roots Intensive for People of Color will explore these questions in relation to your yoga practice. Through dialogue in small and large groups, asana, pranayama, mediation, guided relaxations and somatics we will explore our blocks or habits (samskaras) and cultivate ways to work with them. Deep roots intensive is a safe space for people of color that promotes empowerment, healing and connection. 

“Do you already know that your existence--who and how you are--is in and of itself a contribution to the people and place around you? Not after or because you do some particular thing, but simply the miracle of your life. And that the people around you, and the place(s), have contributions as well? Do you understand that your quality of life and your survival are tied to how authentic and generous the connections are between you and the people and place you live with and in?" - Adrienne Maree Brown, Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds

Yoga And Racial Justice

Yoga And Racial Justice

Yoga and Racial Justice

Saturday, March 16th

1pm - 3:30pm

People come to yoga for many different reasons, one of which is to check out versus checking in. The difference is so subtle that we usually don't even know we are doing it. This is also referred to as spiritual bypassing and it shields us from the truth, it disconnects us from our feelings, and helps us avoid the big picture.

There are many people who believe that we have progressed as a society but by tuning into current events there seems to be a chasm between progress and reality. Now is the time to put our bodies in mindful action toward ahimsa (non-violence). Now is the time to use yoga to help reveal the samskaras (Impressions, ideas, or actions; taken together that make up our conditioning) of racism, oppression and injustice and create new ways of thinking, being, and living. 

Conversations about race and racism can be difficult and uncomfortable, but allowing ourselves to feel that discomfort without becoming defensive or withdrawn is the only place to start.

This workshop will offer a practice of asanas, pranayama, and meditation that will allow us to be present and open. We will explore our roles in how we are potentially perpetuating racism, oppression, and injustice, and identify ways we can begin to form new samskaras around deconstructing our ideas and behaviors cause himsa (violence) to others.

Community Practice and Potluck

Community Practice and Potluck

Relax. Rejuvenate. Restore. Around this time of year there is increased pressure to be and give more to others than yourself. This can manifest in many different ways physically, mentally, and emotionally. Self-care is of the utmost importance. What is better to give yourself than time for self-care?

We would like to invite you to participate in an all-levels practice to move the body, breathe, release. The practice will close with a soothing guided relaxation. Following the practice we will have time to be in community with others, share food (potluck-style), and hold space for anything that may arise. One Yoga will provide free chai for you to sip on in this welcoming community environment.

This is a donation-based event. Donations in any amount to support One Yoga Outreach Programs and the instructor's livelihood are welcome.
