As a yoga studio with a platform and a wide reach, we wanted to share with you some educational materials that we personally have learnt from and also some that have been sent our way teachers and friends of the studio. This list is by absolutely no means exhaustive and we will continue to update regularly and would love to hear your suggestions too.

Read:

Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad.

“Most of you will be familiar with this title by now, and after reading it over the last two days I cannot recommend it enough. This book invites to look further within ourselves and our systems than ever before to acknowledge and dismantle white supremacy. Saad has been kind enough to provide us with a guide with daily tasks (which can be taken at the readers own pace) to look at our white privaledge, how we may have acted in the past and how we can take accountability and break down systemic racism.” – Helena

I Need to Talk to Spiritual White Women About White Supremacy Part 1 & 2 by Layla Saad

A must read for any white women working within the spiritual and wellness industry.

White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard To Talk About Race by Robin DiAngelo

“White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard To Talk About Race – I haven’t read this yet but it was recommended to me by my sister’s friend who is a white brit living in the US married with children to a Black woman.” – Mary. It’s also worth noting that Robin DiAngelo wrote the forward for Me and White Supremacy.

An article from the NY Times about why we need to start this conversation early with excellent children book recommendations.

Listen:

Code Switch Podcast

“Interesting and informative conversations about race and how it impacts every part of society, from politics to pop culture, history, sports and everything else! Found the episode The Limits of Empathy which tells the story of a woman who disguised herself as a black person in order to experience racism and immediately calls out the idea that a white person could potentially have a louder voice on the experience of black people then actual black people!” – Mary

Dis/sect Podcast

“A serial podcast that delves into the deeper meanings of prominent albums by black artists. I particularly appreciated the series on Beyonce’s Lemonade, which explores black relationships, slavery, BLM and the multitude of references to oppression vocalised through this album.” – Helena

Yoga is Dead Podcast

Recommended by friend of the studio Cat, Yoga is Dead is a podcast that explores power, privilege, fair pay, harassment, race, cultural appropriation and capitalism in the yoga and wellness worlds.

“This film is something that I watched last year with my family in Aus and it really touched us all, I highly recommend it and well it speaks for itself. There is deep shame in the history of Australia and there is a pathway forward into healing” – Kitty
