100HR Mentorship Program

This 100HR mentorship program is for those who are interested in the intersection of racial justice and Yoga. The foundation of this mentorship is the recognition that social revolution begins internally before transitioning outward to our community. During this program, you will learn about racial justice activism through The Bhagavad Gita, Goddess Archetypes, and Audre Lorde. Learning about racial justice activism and Yoga is only one layer of this personal revolution. This program will also equip you with the skills to implement your knowledge through creative sequencing, radical self-love, and pleasure activism. During our time together, you will be encouraged to transform the way you show up in the world as an active participant working towards greater racial equity. 

Space is limited to 8 students per cohort.

**While this course lasts 8 months, mentorship with Jess is available in perpetuity.**
