Johnny interviews professor, fellow yoga teacher, and friend Dr. Sunny Davis about diversity, equity, and inclusion in yoga spaces as well as in larger society. Topics in the conversation include definitions for diversity, equity, inclusion, and intersectionality, the importance of centering race in discussions of equity and inclusion, the necessity of asking ourselves about our personal 'whys' for doing equity and inclusion work, the value of combining self-work and systematic work, and how this can all translate to spaces like yoga studios.
