2017 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Sheena Sood is a femme yogini, holistic healer, writer, educator, and activist scholar of South Asian descent, living in West Philadelphia. As an artist, Sheena uses yoga, yogic philosophy, sound healing and Ayurvedic therapy to preserve and share healing practices in accessible ways, namely with marginalized communities. She offers these holistic practices through a critical healing justice framework by grounding them in principles of decolonization, anti-oppression and intersectional social justice. Central to Sheena’s practice is the recognition that oppression, as a form of trauma, inflicts harm on marginalized communities; core to her solution is radical healing—a process that builds people's capacity to work for justice by strengthening their sense of resilience and well-being. As a sociologist, engaged activist and healer who believes in transformative change, Sheena curates yoga and healing offerings that preserve and connect our local movements in Philadelphia to a praxis of collective care.
