Sangeeta Lerner // Yoga Teacher. Social Justice Warrior. Performer.
I am Sangeeta, Indian, yoga teacher, social justice warrior, mother, disruptor, performer. Standing & speaking against racism, ableism, capitalism and creating room for health & wellness, healing & liberation for all. The way I make & take space is highly influenced by my culture, lived experiences – mine and my ancestors‘.
As an unwanted girl child, as a dark skinned girl who grew up navigating the world as a boy. As a child who was not allowed to take stage because of the color of her skin. As a migrant who has lived in the middle east for 3 years & in Germany now for 10. As a mother. As a yoga teacher who has the privilege and access to the wisdom of yoga, one of the 6 fundamental systems of Indian thought. As a human who has faced discrimination, trauma and healing.
I am immensely grateful for the life experiences & suffering that has led to deep enquiry. Healing through yoga & trainings with activists, bodies of culture who have shared with me tools to create space for pre sensing race, gender & collective healing. Recognizing power and privilege.
To create brave spaces where we can breathe freely. Create change collectively. Rest to resist. Reclaim our power. Practice yoga for liberation, for every body.
