Feminist Yoga – Every Thursday

yogaFeminist Yoga at the Feminist Library every Thursday, 7pm-8:30pm.

5a Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7XW

How do we reimagine self-care? How do we validate, honour, love the anger our feminist activism requires to use it for change? How do we find balance in our feminist struggles to be seen, to have voice, to keep moving, to be reflexive, to make transformations? How do we cultivate a space of self-compassion in our inner forms? How do we step into our vulnerable feelings to expose ourselves, to confront patriachy, to recongise our location and relationships to others?

Each week Feminist Yoga Classes explore the relationship between one of these feminist feelings/emotions and yoga (physical postures, breathing and meditation) with a focus on healing.

When we come to and get involved in feminism we experience emotions. I believe we hold these emotions in our physical, mental and emotional bodies – we embody them. Embodied feelings show us why transformations are so difficult but also how they are possible. Yoga is a time we can slow down to tune into the emotions we embody and begin the healing, releasing and strengthening process.
