Be the Change

Support + A Conscious Discussion Around Race Relations for Yoga Teachers


Join Felice Laverne and Katie Brauer for an open and honest conversation and an opportunity to acknowledge what is unfolding, how you feel about race relations and your experiences with it -- to recognize and own your own shortcomings and to learn how we can move forward together toward progressive change and equality as yoga teachers and leaders.


  • A safe and supportive space to be investigation and inquiry
  • Insight and understanding on what is going on in our nation today
  • Steps you can take immediately as a yoga teacher and leader to understand your role in creating real change
  • How to skillfully address the current landscape and speak up in your community
  • How to reduce harm and create a safe space
  • What it means to be diverse and inclusive as you build a business as a yoga professional 
  • Open Q+A

Now is the time to raise your awareness, take responsibility, be in conversation and inquiry, do the work to find greater alignment, and embody the teachings of yoga with the utmost integrity.

Now is the time, and this is an invitation.
