About the Presentations:
Ari Henry will describe his personal story; describe the process of organizing the successful “Queer and Trans* Yoga Sydney” program as a possible template for local classes; outline existing Queer and Trans* programs at other locations in the U.S.; and discuss how accessibility and outreach related to disability and communities of color are inseparably intertwined with Queer and Trans*-welcoming yoga.

Tessa Hayes will give participants the opportunity to engage in the creative process to explore art-making as a tool for embodied experience of self-expression, self-regulation, and healing. Doing this hard work in a supportive community space fosters conversations that facilitate connection crucial in continuing the work needed to bring about collective change.
