In this session, participants will learn about yoga as a lifestyle; the gray area between lifestyle and religion that colonization has created; and how the lessons of yoga can impact the ways we engage with the environment and advocate for those who are disenfranchised in environmental/natural settings, and for the environment itself. 

Many people who have become familiar with yoga know it as an exercise fad due to the colonization of yoga. In order to decolonize yoga, understanding interrelatedness in the life of a yogi, which includes care and compassion towards others and our environment, is vital. 

Jillian LainJillian Lain is a seasoned adjunct instructor in the sociology department at the University of Indianapolis.
