Yoga for the Obliteration of Tyranny


This slow-moving, strengthening practice integrates yoga, music, guided meditation, and transformative justice to provide a space for healing against dissociation and apathy.

The carefully-crafted soundtrack of ambient and heavy music opens the way open for intense emotions to be channeled into creativity rather than into destruction and despair. Designed to honor and replenish the deep systems of the body, this class explores different ways of reclaiming power, sensation, and hope. 

Rage, grief, and fear are all sane reactions to being silenced, destabilized, or made to feel invisible, powerless, or ashamed. It makes sense to get angry and lash out, and it makes sense to numb out and withdraw—whatever it looks like, self-preservation makes sense. Things stop making sense when we use our individual power to silence and destabilize ourselves and each other. Using internalized tactics of tyranny to cope with the consequences of tyranny, we perpetuate cycles of abuse and disconnection.
