Finding yoga that works for you and your body

Community relations librarian at Oakland Public Library and yoga instructor

Resident of:

November 2022

In addition to being a librarian, I’m a longtime yogi and yoga instructor. I love that yoga can be a joyful physical challenge, a focusing channel for the mind and a healing outlet. But the yoga world is often filled with ableism, cultural appropriation and diet-culture messaging, which was disillusioning when I started out. I worked through it by taking my librarian’s love of research to the yoga world. I’ve found instructors, organizations and resources promoting the kind of inclusive yoga values I strive to emulate in my own practice on and off the mat. It is a pleasure to share some of them here with you.
