Where matters of inclusion are concerned, the yoga industry has been muted for years. Therein lies the problem.
Many people are muting themselves on social media this week in solidarity with the the Black Lives Matter movement, a movement which I fully support. However, some yoga and wellness businesses and influencers are using this as a chance to continue to remain silent in the name of “love and light”. This is unacceptable.
Today’s episode is an acknowledgment of the mistakes yoga and wellness businesses have made (my business included) and how we can take responsibility for ushering in change.
I’m not a perfect leader and I most certainly will make mistakes along the way. So will you. But just like I do on my yoga mat, I’m committed to working through these mistakes and continuing to show up day after day as I become a better ally to BIPOC in the wellness world and beyond.
P.S. Listen all the way to the end of the episode to hear what resources have helped me. I’m sure they will help you too.
