Justice Movement is a training and educational collective committed to promoting a functional analysis of systemic privilege and oppression. As teachers and practitioners in several fields of fitness, we are aware of a strong desire for our studios and communities to become more inclusive and diverse. Informed and accountable communities are essential to individual health, survival, and social change. In order to work towards healthy and accountable communities, we must acknowledge and address systemic inequality, power dynamics, and injustice. We need to lift each other up. To support this process, Justice Movement provides tools and trainings focused on building and applying a working analysis of intersectionality, inclusivity and social justice.
Natalie and Danya are professional acro, yoga, movement, fitness and performance teachers. We are also trainers and educators in the fields of social justice, grassroots organizing, diversity inclusion, privilege and oppression, and community building. We each bring a wealth of experience in the diversity and social justice fields, including facilitating, training, and academic engagement We believe we are well suited to support the continued evolution of the acro, yoga, and fitness movements into more inclusive, more accountable, more accessible, and more socially justice focused practices. For more on each of our experiences in the social justice field see our respective bios.

Aiming for Allyship - 4 week Course
I wish this course was required for anyone participating in movement practices. If we all knew how to relate to each other through the lens of what is taught in this course around privilege, intersectionality, allyship, and holding each other accountable, our community spaces would feel much safer and welcoming. To stand outside of this work, is to stand outside of envisioning spaces of true belonging.
