Join Jasmine Tarkeshi, Co-Founder of Laughing Lotus Yoga Centers in NYC and SF and Love Saves the Day non-profit in bridging the practices of Yoga with the tenants of Social Justice and Activism.

Based in the fact that the worlds great problems are connected to the split we create, between ourselves, our planet and others, this training will bridge the teachings and practices of Yoga with social justice and activism.

We will see how we can commit our lives to benefit others, that our personal liberation is bound in the liberation of our brothers and sisters, and explore steps to heal our communities and planet.

This workshop will include an exploration of the main themes of Yoga and Social Justice through The Chakra System including looking deeply into the “shadow” of each Chakra along with each “universal right”.

Through Asana, Pranayama and Mantra along with personal inquiry, group discussion, habit exploration and reforming we will invoke personal change and action, transforming our inner dialogue and outer practices. Together we will create a safe and brave space to look at exploring ways of dismantling deeply rooted and systemic cultural conditioning, outlining practical ways in which we can use our practice and teaching to create social change.

Through the “rights” associated with the chakras, a concept from the yogic tradition, this intersection challenges us to look deeper into both the universality of the human experience as well as its important differences. Through compassionate awareness of both our unity and our separateness can lead to greater equity and justice in our world.

Yoga and meditation are often perceived as solely internal, individual practices. Yet these practices can also be undertaken to promote positive social and personal developments that benefit the greater community. The concern for the social welfare of both the world and its people is essential to the practice of Yoga and for the sake of transformation and social justice. Historically, Yoga and meditation have been instrumental in facilitating social and environmental change.
