Deconstructing Wellness — Finding Flow: Exploring Gender, Embodying Inclusivity
Spring: April 13th, 2021 4-6pm
In this workshop with Tristan Katz, we’ll explore awareness around LGBTQ+ identity and language as a vital component for creating safer spaces, why our individual and collective healing is tied to breaking down cis-hetero norms, and how yoga teachers, wellness practitioners, and space-holders can practice inclusivity and allyship with the LGBTQ+ community. This session will include a discussion about gender identity and terminology, pronoun considerations and what to do when you mess up, and more. We’ll begin with a grounding meditation and then move into community conversation, co-creating a learning environment and container where we can unpack privilege, power, oppression, and what’s needed from each of us to achieve individual and collective liberation.

Deconstructing Wellness: Courageous Conversations for Creating Equity
Winter: January 12th, 2021 4-6pm
In this 2-hour workshop, Holistic Underground shared principles for leadership and allyship that support you to engage with your work and community from a place of inclusion, equity, and dignity — as opposed to blame, shame, guilt, and defensiveness. During this time, Mazin Jamal and Raquel Najera taught a leadership tool that gives you the ability to create the context for generative conversations and excellent allyship within the wellness and healing community, even with complex or challenging topics. 90 minutes was an interactive discussion-based talk, with 30 minutes following for open Q&A.
