Anti-Oppressive Wellness Workshop

with Nya Daley

The Anti-Oppressive Wellness Workshop (AOWW) explores how movement facilitators can integrate Anti-Racist & Anti-Oppressive practices into their wellness offerings. This interactive workshop covers foundational concepts of anti-oppressive practice including accessibility, power and intersectionality. Wellness facilitators will be challenged to consider ways they can foster a culture of belongingness in wellness spaces through the use of inclusive language, environmental modifications and a critical self-study of their personal values, biases & identities.

The session will include:

  • Fundamental terms related to anti-oppressive practice
  • The 4 dimensions of accessibility
  • Intersectional program design exercise – an opportunity to design and pitch a workshop/class offering.
