You can book early here at a discount. 

Join Danielle and Dia for a race, equity and inclusion investigation using the lens of yin yoga as a tool for liberation and equality. Engage in this  intentionally radical look at how privilege, habitual patterns and physical holding play out as injustice in the world.

How do we confront and contain our energy, while making our bodies conduits for change? What does it take to create change, both internal and external?

This workshop is designed for yoga teachers, curious students, activists,  and seekers  of all levels.  The hours count as CEU with Yoga Alliance, or can applied towards the completion of LLY 200 Yin Yoga School. 

Your Teachers:


Director of Curriculum & Education, World Trust

Dia dances in the intersections of art, yoga, and social justice. A yoga practitioner for over 20 years, she discovered her love of yoga through a book she checked out from a local library. Dia supports students in slowing down, examining limiting patterns, and exploring creativity. She views yoga as a tool for social change, integrating it into her work as a social justice coach by encouraging a deep exploration of structural inequity through personal transformation and paradigm shift.

Dia is a connector of ideas, people, feelings, and thoughts. She is a mother, yogi, artist, activist, lover, teacher and student. She recognizes that her students share similarly complex identities and strives to meet them where they are at, every day.
