The C.O.W.S. Counter-Racist Yoga Retreat: TORONTO 🇨🇦

The Context of White Supremacy Radio Program has dedicated eleven years to broadcasting counter-racist concepts and strategies to help Replace White Supremacy With Justice. Since becoming a certified yoga instructor in 2018, Gus T. Renegade has emphasized correct eating and exercise as critical components of self-care and counter-racism. Non-white people won't/don't have the vitality needed to neutralize Racists if we're reckless with nourishing, strengthening, and replenishing our minds and bodies.

The C.O.W.S. Counter-Racist Yoga Retreats are uniquely designed to help black people (Victims of White Supremacy) detoxify and nourish ourselves while courteously exchanging views and relaxation with other non-white people. Our first two retreats, in Virginia and Florida respectively, had lots of delicious plant-based meals, yoga, and courteous dialog.

We plan to continue this event as long as it's constructive. Up next, we travel north of the U.S. border to Toronto.

Date: Thursday, May 21st to Sunday, May 24th. 
Where: Toronto, Ontario Canada

There are a number of Toronto locations that are within 40 minutes of the Toronto airport where we'll have beds for all participants, adequate bathrooms, and space for yoga. Once we have a definitive number of participants, we'll send out information with an exact address for the retreat.
The investment for the Toronto retreat is $660. This includes:
  • All meals (Chef Nadirah Khalifah prepared all meals for the Virginia  and Florida retreats and will be flying north to cook plant-based breakfasts, lunches and dinners)
  • Lodging
  • Morning and Evening yoga classes taught by Gus T. Renegade (200hr certified/ 85hr prenatal certified)
  • Counter-Racist Workshops
  • Quality contact with like-minded Victims of Racism
  • Gift Bag with C.O.W.S. Retreat T-Shirt and surprises.

This does not include:
  • Transportation
  • Travel Insurance
  • Yoga Mat

A $400 deposit is due by February 29th. The deposit is non-refundable. The remaining $260 is due by May 1st. Payments can be submitted using PayPal (, CashApp ($TheCOWS), or check/money order. Please, email Gus for mailing information.

For Parents!
There were a number of attempted parents who mailed Gus with sincere interest in attending the retreats with their offspring. However, Racism makes many things financially challenging for non-white people. To compensate, as long as there are eight paying adults signed up for the retreat, the cost for children ages 14 and under is $330. All adults and children are expected to participate in all workshops and yoga sessions during the retreat. Children must be at least 10 years of age.

Parents must submit a deposit of $165 by February 29th to reserve a spot for your child. The remaining $165 is due by May 1st.

Hopefully, you'll consider getting ready for the summer of 2020 with a constructive, counter-racist twist. #EatWellUseLogic
