“DE-COLONISING YOGA TOGETHER with SANTOSA crew and friends”
Saturday 7 March from 7- 9.30pm at the Portico Gallery in West Norwood, South London
Arrivals from 6.45pm to settle in for a short welcoming Total Yoga Nidra at 7pm
This year the theme of the Santosa Yoga Camp is ‘De-colonising Yoga’. We have been running this camp for fifteen years, and have created through our community a safe and welcoming space.
The Intention: To be together in rest with Total Yoga Nidra, to open our hearts and minds to healing. To listen, to be curious, to learn about De-Colonising Yoga. To hear the voices of those who have committed to revealing and dismantling systems of oppression that harm everybody, and continue to limit and constrain the freedom we seek through the practice of yoga. To centre the margins, educate and inform, to share experience and ask questions. To explore the connections between post-lineage yoga and de-colonising yoga.
Cost: This event is offered as a gift to all who feel moved to attend. Monetary offerings are at the discretion of those attending – if you feel inspired to join us then please come and contribute whatever you can afford to cover the expenses for all of the speakers. (Uma is offering the space she has rented for a Well Woman Yoga Therapy course to provide a venue for this event – so that is why we can offer the event as a gift.)
Booking: Advance booking is not essential. But if you know you are coming, please reserve a space on The Source.

Sofya Ayesha Ansari, director of Sattva Gaia
Diahann Love Holder, cofounder of Urban Avatars
Saara Jaffery-Roberts, cofounder and director of Healing Justice London.
