I found myself on a beautiful crisp fall day with Julia Coney, a wise and joyous yogi and woman of the world. She helped me start to unpack what true belonging in a yoga community would mean. What would it look like and feel like if everyone regardless of income, race, ethnicity, citizenship status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identification, body type or physical ability felt that they truly belonged? What will it take? How will it come into being? Who will be there?
After lunch, I found myself with a list of people and places to visit to continue my schooling — places that are vibrant, new, creative, inclusive. Thank you, Julia.
