Postures, Breathing Techniques, Behavioral Restraints, Behavioral Observances, Sensory Withdrawal, Concentration, Meditation and Self-Realization will be practiced throughout the training with an acute awareness of how these practices relate to our own self-awareness, self-care and how we live out the practices of inclusivity and our social justice passions, which will assist us all in working towards being a more humane society.

Social Justice exploration, AntiRacist Framework

We explore Social Justice passions through the trauma-informed lens of Raja Yoga a combined AntiRacist framework of intimately exploring Community-based AntiRacist Organizing with the People’s Institute For Survival and Beyond’s Undoing Racism Principles©, Racial Equity framework that challenges patterns of Power and Grow Equity with the Racial Equity Institue©, and Ego-Reduction/Gatekeepers Academy with the Soul Focused Group.
