Holistic Resistance has been bringing practice and action together in yoga communities across the country. With an emphasis on personal relationship and closeness, we aim to build life-long connections and transformation. Our approach in these workshops combines deeply honoring the healing power of yoga and disrupting the unconscious patterns of racism in our communities and individual selves.
We are committed to questioning what is possible within our yoga communities, activist spaces, and movements for change. We realize that yoga teachers and students have a felt-sense in their bodies of what it can be like to sit with discomfort and commit to a practice.
These workshops are for anyone who is interested in the intersection of yoga & social justice.
It is both for people who are already in the yoga community & also for folks who have had little exposure to yoga.
Our programs attract yoga students, activists, yoga teachers, psychologists, dancers, and educators.
These workshops are for all levels of students.
We are committed to making our sessions accessible, trauma-informed, & effective for all levels of students.

Collaborative, innovative, and participatory group work and conversation.
Intimate, deep, and thoughtful work in pairs/dyads.
Active listening exercises as tools to take with you after the workshop.

What Is Our Approach?
We have found that starting on a human level is a vital way to effectively build bonds that will last a lifetime in this work.
Our approach in these workshops combines deeply honoring the healing power of yoga and disrupting the unconscious patterns of racism in our communities and individual selves.
One of the foundational blocks of Holistic Resistance is that we recognize that oppression affects people of color (people of the global majority) on all levels of life. So we are drawn to practices that support all levels of life.
