Never have the issues of accessibility, inclusion and power dynamics in our yoga spaces been more relevant or important.

-Accessibility and inclusion

-Experiential learning and discussion around appropriate pranayama practice
-Recognising power dynamics in a yoga space- language, environment and ethics
