RYT 500 | Teacher
Europa Grace (they/she) has been teaching yoga for over six years. Trained in the Kripalu lineage, Europa’s practice is rooted in deep introspection, breath and intuition. With a trauma sensitive approach to teaching they value the intelligence of the body over an external goal. Europa facilitates workshops and trainings in equity and intersectionality in yoga, arts, and collective spaces. A trained mediator, poet and performance artist, Europa combines modalities to guide generative exercises to support yoga instructors to decolonize the body and education. Europa has taught at Kripalu Center, Omega Institute and co-teaches Social Permaculture throughout the Bay Area with renowned writer/teacher Starhawk. As a black queer non-binary femme Europa teaches from a place of lived experience and encourages other to do the same, after all – the personal is political.
