Acknowledging Country for Yoga Teachers
An Acknowledgement of Country is an opportunity for anyone to show respect for Traditional Custodians and the continuing connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to Country.
While it is normal practice to Acknowledge Country at the beginning of real-life events such as yoga classes and conferences, it makes sense for businesses (not only yoga studios!) who operate in Australia to also Acknowledge Country on their websites. This is another opportunity to show respect to the oldest continuous Culture on this earth and their custodial role and establish reciprocity within ongoing relationships.
You can find my original artworks as a backdrop along with Yaan circle approved wording for your own Acknowledgment of Country via Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation, a not for profit organisation working to create teaching scholarships for First Nations people as well as providing cultural awareness training for yoga teachers.
