Last year, we created a list of educational resources for anyone who wished to better inform themselves about institutional racism, black history and the role of race in yoga.
We have continued to add to this with new resources that we hope will guide your teaching.
 
This list is by no means exhaustive, and we appreciate any recommendations for further reading and education.
