The Diversity in Yoga site is place for thoughtful conversation. In our culture, we continue to have a huge issue with inclusion and exclusion, systematized and institutionalized oppression, misunderstanding and deep wounds on all sides. And yet, we are still not facing this issue fully. This conversation requires patience, kindness, open mindedness and courage.
As yoga students, we are dedicated spiritual practitioners, and our spiritual path clearly lays out a way to operate and communicate. The DIY site is a place for people who specifically want to USE their yoga to talk about yoga and inclusion. Therefore, we have some guidelines that all posts must meet. These are based on the yamas and niyamas, or most basic ethical precepts of yoga. Please make sure to review the Conversational Guidelines before posting.
Let the conversation begin.
