Yoga and Social Change with Molly Lannon Kenny
Time & Location
About The Event
This inspiring free talk is for all yoga teachers, yoga students, and anyone interested in learning about how we can make a real and lasting impact on the world around us by choosing to live in the spirit of compassion, inclusion and equality. In this engaging and thought provoking workshop, Molly Lannon Kenny will present the challenge of accepting our desires to help and serve, and then of letting them go, in favor of the greater desire for deep human connection, or kinship.
By the end of this inspired talk, participants will have a new lens through which to see what each of us, as individuals, can do to change our own prejudices and presumptions, and see our commitment to social justice as a necessary part of our commitment to yoga.

She is frequently a guest on yoga podcasts and the keynote speaker at major yoga conferences.
Molly’s current focus is on Bedside Yoga, Yoga and End of Life Care, Yoga and Grief Recovery, and the intersection of contemplative practice and social justice.
