In this conversation, leading yoga teachers Amy Ippoliti, Hari-kirtana das, and yogic activist Reggie Hubbard discuss the foundations of yoga and how we can begin to heal this divide and move forward with truth, integrity, and compassion.

    CE Workshop | How to Find New Clients Online

    Apr 19, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (ET)
    with Mado Hesselink (E-RYT 500, YACEP).

    Approximately 80 precent of the population suffers from chronic, or episodic, lower back pain. This can occur for many different reasons, yet how we move, sleep, and sit can dramatically impact our backs' health. Often, proper balancing of the deep flexor muscles of the “core” with the extensor muscles of the lower back/pelvis can improve low back pain—and yoga is a wonderful medium for this to occur! This workshop discusses the functioning of the iliopsoas muscle, the alignment of the pelvis, and the risks of excessive sitting and poor sleep hygiene. It also provides guidance on how to address and trouble-shoot our students’ and personal lower back pain.

    Panel Discussion | Evolution of Yoga Summit and Blueprint, Part 3: Cultural Appropriation

    Apr 20, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM (ET)

    with with Susanna Barkataki (E-RYT 500, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP, C-IAYT), Rina Deshpande (Ed.M., MS.T., E-RYT 500), Kelley Palmer, Luvena Rangel Krishnamurthy, and Dr. Tria Blu Wakpa.

    With the confluence of Yoga teachers of various lineages and cultures, the Cultural Appropriation Track at this conference invites practitioners to explore questions and nuances raised within the context of Yoga and cultural appropriation. We will consider the fine line between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. We will also assess the impacts within the Indian and South Asian diasporic context as well as within Black and Indigenous Native American cultures. Cultural appropriation involves a degeneration of primordial cultural rituals and wisdom, so we will also explore the depth, creativity, and richness of indigenous rites and practices that are often missing from Modern Postural Yoga practices. We will explore and practice restoration of ancestral wisdom and other Yogic cultural elements.
