BIPOC Healing Yoga
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) need a space to practice yoga as a way to heal from the damages of racism and other systemic injustices, many which create serious health impacts on our bodies (e.g, weathering, depression & other mental health, hypertension, cardiovascular disease), also known as embodied inequality (Krieger, 2013). Yoga is recognized as having numerous health benefits but is often practiced in "race-evasive" ways, ones where race, racism, and intersecting injustices are ignored, in largely white spaces. In order to provide a space for BIPOC to engage in yoga that specifically addresses racism and intersectional injustice, we have created BIPOC+ Healing Yoga. This donation based class provides yoga practice that sustains a traditional commitment to yoga's roots while also building in an explicit discussion of recognition of and healing from racism and its intersecting oppressions. The + is in recognition that people of color experience intersecting oppressions (e.g., sexism, ableism, cis-heteropatriarchy) that make them even more vulnerable to societal and interpersonal inequities. BIPOC+ need healing spaces where they do not feel "othered", where they are the norm instead of the exception. The goal of BIPOC+ Healing Yoga is to provide an opportunity for people of color to be seen and loved as they make their way through a regular yoga practice. We respectfully remind you that this class is only for those who identify as BIPOC and that if you do not identify as BIPOC, there are ## of classes at Om Tree you can take. For examples of other studios and teachers using BIPOC+ only spaces for healing from racism in society and yoga community, see: Do We Need Yoga Classes Dedicated to Women of Color?
