Yoga Alliance Leadership Conference

August 9th, 2011

Michael has been invited to lead a workshop on teaching Yoga to underserved populations at Yoga Alliance’s National Yoga Leadership Conference in the Fall.  We are very excited to have Michael facilitate a session on the intersection of Yoga and Social Justice.  Michael will guide Yoga teachers through a compassionate examination of their own beliefs and judgments about underserved populations. He will use several of the eight limbs as ethical and moral standards for serving students in challenging environments. Attendees will gain teaching skills to encourage students to connect, accept and forgive the deeper aspects of Self.
