Accessible & Adaptive Yoga Panel Discussion
“Accessible” has become a common term within conversations of yoga. But what does that mean? And what do teachers mean when they say their class is “accessible”?
Mainstream yoga caters to young, able-bodied white women with a disposable income through marketing, price-point, class styles, studio locations, and schedules. It’s easy to identify the things that make yoga inaccessible, but perhaps a little more challenging to identify ways in which to remove those barriers within our St. Louis yoga community. That’s why the term “accessible” when describing a yoga class may be good-hearted but is not very specific and can, at times, be misleading.
Join members of the Yoga Buzz Accessible and Adaptive Yoga Committee on Thurday, March 30th at the Crown Room of Schlafly Bottleworks for a panel discussion specifically on this topic. This panel discussion is free and open to the public, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.
