How does systemic racism manifest both in and outside of yoga spaces, and how can we as yogis step up, wake up, and commit to creating a just world?
Join Chelsea Jackson Roberts, Carrington Jackson, Michelle Johnson, and Kerri Kelly for an engaging conversation on the intersection of yoga and social justice.
This conversation explores collective resilience, the history behind current forms of oppression, the power of relationship building (allyship), creating safe yoga spaces for everyone, listening to the experiences of others, how to effectively discuss social justice issues, and more.
Now is the time to rise up and take action for the collective good. Join us for this deep, educational, and enriching discussion, and bring what you learn into the world.

After leaving the classroom, Chelsea decided to focus more on the ways in which yoga can be used to cultivate critical inner literacy within her students.
Chelsea’s doctoral work at Emory University, which focused on language, literacy, and culture, has been integrated into the work she does within underserved communities. Chelsea’s commitment to the practice of yoga and to marginalized communities is sustained by the work of Red Clay Yoga, Inc.
