Yoga for Social Activism: How to be a Warrior for Global Change

July 29 - July 29, 2020

Jordan Ashley

As the yoga and globalization continue to expand, how do we shift our practice into one of service, activsim, and global change? By taking a deeper look into how to use the tool of yoga or “union” into a holistic life-style that encourages tangible compassion, mindful action, and social outreach, we are able to create a world in which we are both supported and supportive.

When yoga is taken out of the studio and into the world that the greatest shift in consciousness occurs because we have the opportunity to realize and see through first-hand experience for ourselves that we are, in fact, all one. Winning the lottery of life by not having to second guess where our next meal will come from or where we will be sleeping, makes it our global responsibility to stand up and give voice to those we are unable to.

This workshop invites you to explore Seva (service), Self-Care, and Sangha (community) to embark on a journey with founder of Souljourn Yoga, Jordan Ashley to experience what it means to be a warrior of globalnchange in  by discovering causes that resonate with hearts and putting mindful action behind it.
