The Inclusion Yoga Service Conference is an opportunity to create dialogue within the yoga community regarding important areas of exploration: cultural appropriation, racism, consent, and accessibility. It will be a platform for the yoga community to come together to address these essential issues through listening, learning and action. This groundbreaking opportunity is for yoga activists who want to collaborate with other change makers to collectively take steps to move forward.
