This Decolonizing Yoga page will center and highlight South Asian and BIPOC voices and resources.  If you have resources you’d like to see added, please email them to Kyra@Revolution.Yoga.  Many of these resources were gathered and passed along by Anusha Wijeyakumar – she is a wealth of knowledge!

“A mindful reminder that our Yoga practice was never meant to be about escapism. It is not about sitting in our own comfort and privilege and avoiding anything that makes us uncomfortable. The time to decolonize is now. Collective liberation is the goal.” ~ Anusha Wijeyakumar
