Living Yoga’s Access Yoga Project, Yogathon 2019

 

This Yogathon, we challenged ourselves and our community to recognize and address opportunities for increased accessibility in yoga through our #accessyogaproject. We were amazed at the conversation, insights, and inquiry that emerged, and are motivated to continue this conversation throughout the year.
