"Yoga Justice / Yoga Violence" Conference

updated: 
Sunday, December 13, 2015 - 1:28pm
Race and Yoga Working Group

The Race and Yoga Research Working Group at the University of California, Berkeley will host its third annual conference on Friday, April 22, 2016. The theme of the conference is "Yoga Justice / Yoga Violence." Yoga can be a tool to promote social justice. Yet, it can also be used to perpetuate violence and oppression. This conference invites a diverse array of practitioners and scholars to critically examine justice and violence in yoga communities.

What is yoga justice? How is "justice" defined and by whom? How do we rethink narratives that promote justice through yoga? Conversely, what kinds of violence occur in yoga spaces? How are people responding and/or resisting forms of yoga violence?
