Deconstructing & Decolonizing Yogic Practices.
Informational workshop plus a movement-based practice centered around dismantling mainstream and whitewashed notions and narratives of yoga and its history by presenting its African (Kemetic, Yoruba) roots and philosophies. Followed by a joyful, nurturing, body inclusive yoga session that incorporates postures, movements and breathwork honoring both the Vedic and the African lineages, accompanied by a really dope playlist. Led by Daddypuss Rex, a Black, non-binary, gender goblin and somatics & yoga guide.
Iroko Yoga centers BIPOC and Queer/Trans experiences, narratives and bodies. Founded by Daddypuss Rex (they/them), a Blaqueer, non-binary trans yoga teacher, critical race & gender educator and community organizer whose aim is to empower practitioners of all intersections and identities to fully engage with and exercise their agency on and off the mat as an act of radical self-acceptance and as an act of sustainable community resistance.
