Embodied Activism with Nkem Ndefo and Rae Johnson

In this episode of the Yoga Show, host Lindsay Tucker is joined by Rae Johnson and Nkem Ndefo to discuss embodied activism and using the felt experience of our bodies for social justice.

The theme of our September/October issue is Healing—and on this episode of the Yoga Show we chat with Rae Johnson and Nkem Ndefo, leaders of an Embodied Activism Course from Embodied Philosophy. Drawing on neuroscience, somatic theory and practice, liberation psychology, trauma-informed and anti-oppressive education, and lived experience, the course examines practical strategies to reclaiming, resisting, and interrogating the political realities of our everyday lives using the felt experiences of our bodies as the groundwork for social justice—so we can come at personal and community healing from the inside out.

Join Nkem, Rae, and Lindsay on The Yoga Show as they discuss:

  • Reconnecting to the self and body through somatic practices
  • Respecting the roots of tradition while getting into embodiment practices
  • Finding pleasure in the little moments
  • Shifting the imbalance of power toward equality through activism
  • And more!
