(Re)defining Queer and Trans Yoga Spaces

December 4, 2018 - 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm (already occurred)

Join four local queer and trans yoga instructors, Jena Duncan, Sebastian Merrill, Tiffany Joseph and Elli Palmer, for an evening of beginner yoga and a discussion on creating space for marginalized gender and sexuality identities in yoga and fitness. We will also reflect on cultural appropriation within the western practice of yoga and discuss strategies to decolonize our practices. Yoga will be held in the Powerhouse, doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and yoga practice beginning promptly at 6 p.m. There will be yoga mats available for those who do not own their own mats. The panel discussion and dinner begins at 7 p.m. in the Queer Resource Center. All are welcome to join for either or both components of the event.
