This class is dedicated to end violence against women. It is an aspiration practice where we strive for a world without violence. In yoga we call this ahimsa or loving kindness. In this class we honour all women who are living in situations of domestic violence and oppression, those who have survived abuse and assault, those who have spoken against their oppressors, those who remain in silence, and all of us in the world who come together collectively to offer our support to end violence and offer our support, strength, courage and loving kindness in the world.
This is not just a class to point out women who have experienced violence, oppression and sexual assault, but the brave communities and courageous women who have stood up against their oppressors in public and private ways and offered their support to the women who have survived these experiences. This hatha yoga class includes yoga poses or asanas along with these teachings.
This class contains no savasana, no lying backbends or excessive hip openers. I have done my best to eliminate poses that I think would be too vulnerable or send women into past or present trauma. This class focuses on helping women find their voice by opening up the throat chakra. Through this voice may we speak up publicly, in confidence and may we respect the right to choose silence. Also in this class we will practice poses to help us find our courage, strength and know that we are worthy of love.
