Yoga as Resistance: Equity and Inclusion On and Off the Mat

by Dr. Stacie Graham Author

Yoga is a powerful practice to create change in your body and in your approach to the world. Unfortunately, the vast majority of instructors in North America are white, cis, and able-bodied, meaning that the lack of diversity in instructors can lead to a lack of diversity in students. In this new book, author and doctor Stacie Graham offers a way to question the status quo, train new yoga instructors, and foster greater equity in the yoga world. Through pairing equity concepts with Sanskrit words, and yoga poses with each chapter of this book, those interested in learning how to be a yoga instructor will receive a comprehensive education in equity even as they learn their sun salutations and downward dogs. A great tool for bringing your values into alignment with your yoga practice.
