Queer and Trans Yoga Workshop

Saturday, January 30 // 1:30 – 3:30 PM
The Studio Cleveland
 // 1395 W. 10th Street, Suite 120 (East Bank of the Flats)

From the Supreme Court marriage equality ruling to the emergence of gender-neutral public restrooms, our country has taken great strides in recent months to confront issues of LGBTQ oppression. But there’s still work to be done.

Much of this work must happen at the individual and interpersonal levels. Indeed, only when we recognize and deconstruct our own biases can we work to eliminate the inequalities of our institutions, communities, and societies.

For some, this deeply personal work can happen in the yoga studio. That’s why I invite you to join my colleague and friend, Jacoby Ballard, E-RYT 500, who will host a Queer and Trans Yoga Workshop this weekend in Cleveland.

What You’ll Learn

  • Perspectives in LGBTQ issues, including an analysis of grief and isolation
  • Understanding the role of compassion in the healing process
  • Methods to integrate yogic postures, meditation, and somatic work toward healing and inclusivity
