Yoga for Social Justice

community donation-based classes co-taught by experienced, kind, and fun-loving teachers. 100% proceeds go to local Bay Area organizations working on behalf of disenfranchised people.

As my family protested along with thousands of people this spring, I still felt so powerless against the deadly systemic racism in the US (and worldwide). As I was complaining "I wish I were a lawyer: then I could REALLY help people," my 10 year old daughter Catherine (see picture below) called me out: "What? You think you can't help them with Yoga????"

The recent powerful outcry against racism in the US has also highlighted just how rarified and 'caste-like' the Yoga world is: white, cis-gender, heterosexual, upper middle class. This is partly because of the un-equal access to resources (health, housing, income, food, education) resulting from racial and other inequalities. ​

Yoga for Social Justice is my commitment to go from just 'talking' to 'start doing', as we go about the challenging task of creating a society where everyone gets to thrive from the ground up. The proceeds from these classes are donated to organizations that are making a real difference on a grass roots level. A key component of this project is fostering community among yoga teachers. I'm excited to be partnering with amazing, great-hearted teachers in our worldwide network. 

If you are interested in co-teaching one of our classes, or would like to recommend an organization to donate to, please contact me at suzanne@suzanneyoga.net.
