Congratulations to the recipient of October 2020 Program:
Lena (she/her) is a critical urbanist with a background in participatory research, design justice and program development. She has lived and worked in Canada and internationally in support of community-driven initiatives addressing systemic oppression. She began practicing yoga as a teenager and, in every new environment since, she has consistently sought out a yoga practice and community.
Being able to access safer, accountable and anti-oppressive spaces and teachers – particularly those led by BIPOC practitioners – has been critical to furthering her yoga practice as well as facilitating physical/emotional healing and well-being. Through this training, she hopes to further diversify the yoga sector as well as bring accessible/affordable offerings to BIPOC communities existing most at the margins, especially Black communities. As an instructor, she intends to engage activists, artists, low-wage earners, grassroots organizers, those living at the intersection of multiple identities/experiences, and young people in/leaving care and/or engaged in the justice system.
