In this workshop, we will explore how people who teach movement/bodymind practices (yoga, dance, martial arts, meditation/mindfulness etc) can make their classes more accessible to a wide array of bodies and minds. The workshop will examine Access-Centered and invitational language, Access-Centered Movement and variations, as well as opening a dialogue around cultural humility when engaging with different bodies and minds.  You will be provided with an overview of the disability justice framework (a framework by disabled, queer people of color) and how to apply this framework to teaching movement. The workshop will include interactive lectures, demonstrations, some space for participants to practice with each other, and time for questions and answers.
