The Privilege and Burden of Healing Generational Trauma for WOC and Allies with Harpinder Mann

If you feel like healing generational trauma is both a privilege and a burden, you’re not alone. This episode is all about healing trauma as a woman of color, and we’re talking it out with special guest Harpinder Mann.

We’re sharing our experiences as first-generation immigrants and talking about why ending generational trauma is important to us. Harpinder is also sharing her experience as a yoga asana and meditation teacher and diving deep into how yoga creates liberation from suffering to get back to pure consciousness.

You’ll be fascinated as you listen to her talk about how yoga can be used to heal and how that healing is what helps you end generational trauma.

Harpinder Mann (she/her) is a Sikh-Buddhist Punjabi-American yoga asana and meditation teacher currently living on Tongva Land. Her childhood consisted of trauma from domestic violence, sexual abuse, and bullying which set her on a journey of healing through yoga, meditation, activism, and brave community. Now she aims to move through the world with compassion and joy.

This led her to create Harpinder Mann Yoga in 2018, where Harpinder now works with womxn of color 1:1 on reclaiming their power & intuition to be free through yoga asana, meditation, breathwork, and spiritual connection. She has over 800 hours of yogic training within the traditions of Raja, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Prenatal Yoga from respected teachers across the globe. Without her teachers, ancestors, and women before her, none of this would be possible.

She is also actively working to decolonize wellness by creating community and providing real accessibility to her ancestral practices for BIPOC as the co-founder of the Womxn of Color Summit, an equitable community organization focused on creating brave and inclusionary spaces for womxn and non-binary people of color to share stories and knowledge as well as make impactful change.

  • Why it’s so important to work on healing trauma
