In this episode of Fearless Rebelle Radio, I’m chatting with Dianne Bondy – Yoga Teacher, Social Justice Activist & leading voice of the Yoga For All movement.

In This Episode, We Chat About

  • What she noticed about yoga culture and how this prompted her to become a social justice activist,
  • Dianne’s experience with discrimination and racism and the influence of this on her body image and self-worth,
  • How the media’s portrayal of people of colour creates stereotypes, perpetuates racism and impacts the self-worth of women of colour,

  • The “white-washing” of yoga culture and how this is counter to the roots of yoga and yoga philosophy,
  • The co-opting of body positivity in yoga culture and all of the different reasons this is problematic,
  • How to study your privilege and viewpoints to be a better ally,

  • How diet culture permeates into yoga culture and why it’s counter to fundamental principles of yoga,
