Accessing the Heart of Yoga - Week 3 with Jivana Heyman
July 19 - 23, 2021
Accessible Yoga is about more than just adapting poses. This week we’ll explore how to make the heart of the yoga teachings accessible to all those who are interested in these transformational practices.
This means we begin with an exploration of the essential teachings of yoga, and consider if our practice is in alignment with these concepts. We’ll consider ways to engage with the practice that honors the roots of yoga, but also make the practice applicable to our contemporary lives today. In particular, we’ll examine how connecting to the roots of yoga helps us build a practice that is truly accessible to all.
This week's sessions will include:
- Monday Lecture: Engaged & Accessible Yoga | 2 - 3:15pm PDT | 5 - 6:15pm EDT
- Wednesday Practice: A Universal Practice | 9 - 10:15am PDT | 12 - 1:15pm EDT
- Friday Meditation: The Heart of Meditation | 9 - 10am PDT | 12 - 1pm EDT
100% of your contribution to this course helps to support and sustain our network of community leaders, activists, our ongoing scholarship program, and our greater OTM community worldwide who are at the frontlines of change for our collective wellbeing. We greatly appreciate your support!
For your reference: Each week will consist of 3 (three) independent online offerings that will tie into one another and take you on a full experiential journey. The arc and content of this training has been very carefully designed, in deep collaboration with an incredible list of community leaders, activist, and educators.
DISABILITY JUSTICE is a conversation and practice we are moving to the forefront of our work with OTM. If you have specific accessibility needs that would better support you while participating in any of our online courses, we’d greatly appreciate your input.
