Cultural Awareness Training
Time & Location
About the Event
This special and unique training deigned by Eve White and Katie Rose opens up two areas for investigation:
1) The Australian yoga teacher’s relationship to ‘Country’ and how we may all be more respectful of Indigenous Australia’s roots in our classes and offerings. 2) The ongoing conversation about cultural appropriation in yoga in regard to Indian culture and yoga’s ‘roots’ in Eastern tradition.
Our intention in offering this training is to:
1) Give you tools as a teacher to share in a more culturally sensitive way and educate others so the ripple effect of change can be felt. 2) Help you dig into your own prejudice, trauma and ancestry to teach from more embodiment and authenticity regardless of your cultural heritage. 3) Create safe spaces for collective healing both during the training and as a legacy of it.THIS TRAINING WILL INCLUDE:• Practice based on Eve’s ‘Connection to Country Yoga Flow’ • Discussion and conversation • Journaling and self-reflection • Unravelling embodied colonialism, privilege and trauma in ourselves and learning tools to support this process in our students. • Unpacking yamas and niyamas of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra as they relate to Australian colonialism. • ‘Spiritual Activism’ as a framework for change. • Guest teachers and audio / visual materials from other guides and teachers as appropriate and helpful.
