About Yoga4SocialJustice 

Yoga4SocialJusticeā„¢ is an organization committed to connecting the mind-body-spirit through engagements of diversity, equity, and social justice principles. The practice of yoga helps to enhance what is necessary for social justice movements - a commitment to connecting to our identity narratives (race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, family, etc.), a commitment to unlearning perceptions that limit our connections to others, and a commitment to challenging the status quo. Yoga4SocialJusticeā„¢ uses a particular curriculum that satisfies the three aforementioned commitments. The curriculum utilized allows individuals to engage in diversity and social justice learning through resources and materials designed to meet the needs of individuals. The curriculum includes a yoga practice of asanas (yoga postures) and meditation connected to diversity, equity, and social justice content. The goal is to use the practice of yoga - the union of mind-body-spirit - as a way to move the needle for understanding the various arms of diversity, equity, and social justice.
