  • Fat Justice & Anti-Fatness in Yoga Practice & Teaching

    January 28, 2021  6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    Open to all! Register at https://fatjusticeinyoga.brownpapertickets.com/

    This workshop introduces Fat Justice as a framework to help us unravel our internalized ideas about "good" bodies, "healthy" bodies, and how bodies "should" look and be. So many of us have absorbed such ideas from the dominant culture, yet they can undermine not only our own practice, but also our trust with students and our ability to create an environment that welcomes and celebrates all bodies.

    Although the fat acceptance movement and body positivity efforts have grown immensely over the last few decades, anti-fatness is often ignored as a system of oppression, with fat people shamed and punished for existing at all, in both explicit and implicit ways. This can be particularly concentrated in spaces that focus on embodiment, movement, and/or fitness.

    Given the massive changes of the past few months, its more obvious than ever that the way we are taught to think about fatness, rather than fatness itself, is really, really bad for our health. But these messages about fatness and health are not easy to unlearn. This is the perfect moment to explore how fat justice can support your practice and teaching.

    Maybe in our current crisis, you're uneasy with some of the messages you're seeing and cant totally articulate why. Maybe being home 24/7 is reconnecting you with your own body in ways that feel challenging, or you're just sick of the constant barrage of memes, stories, helpful hints, and weight-focused advice. Whatever the reason, we welcome you to learn and practice with us.

    Through a lively combination of short presentations, discussions, self-reflection, and collaborative problem-solving, participants will:

    - Gain understanding of the moral, medical, social, and liberation models of fatness
    - Examine their own internalized beliefs about size and health, including how these relate to race, gender, class, disability and more
    - Consider how these beliefs impact them and how they have impacted others, especially in yoga practice and teaching
    - Evaluate what they believe is possible/impossible in moving towards an accessible world and liberation for all bodies

    *This session will be recorded and available to all those who register, whether or not you are able to attend the live session.*
