All Community Day Events Are Streamed Live Online (ZOOM)
Building Cultural Competency in Yoga Therapy 1:30pm-5:00pm
Faculty: Janessa Mondestin
Cultural competence in yoga therapy involves understanding and appropriately responding to the unique combination of cultural variables and the full range of dimensions of diversity that the professional and client/patient/family bring to interactions. To understand CC we must become aware of factors, including but not limited to age, disability, ethnicity, gender identity (encompasses gender expression), national origin (encompasses related aspects e.g., ancestry, culture, language, dialect, citizenship, and immigration status), race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and veteran status. Developing cultural competence as a yoga therapist is a process requiring ongoing self-assessment and continuous expansion of one’s own biases.
The community day workshop events cover a broad range of topics that you can choose to attend either one or both half day topics.
Please select the appropriate event ticket for the topic time(s) that you would like to attend. Each ticket is good for streaming live online. See ticket descriptions for more details on specific topics. There are two separate links for each event date, one for the morning session and one for the afternoon session. If you would like to re-watch, you will also receive a link of the recording that is good for 30 days after the event.
The morning session of the Community Day will start at 8:30am PST. Once the program begins, it will be difficult for us to work with you individually, so please log in online before 8:30am to be sure you are able to attend effectively and not interrupt the other participants.
The afternoon session will begin at 1:30pm PST for streaming participants. The program begins promptly at 1:30pm, it will be difficult for us to work with you individually after we start, so please log in before 1:30pm to be sure you are able to attend effectively. Our day together will end at 5:00pm PST.
The morning live stream is from 8:30am-12:30pm and the afternoon live stream is from 1:30pm to 5:00pm. Lunch break will be from 12:30-1:30pm PST.
