This week, Sarah discusses "Yoga And" culture with Tejal Patel and Jesal Parikh. In this episode, the women explore what yoga and is and why it is problematic. Tejal and Jesal share their three-pronged approach to assessing a new type of yoga. 1. Is it safe? 2. Is it mindful? 3. Is it appropriating another culture?
Tejal and Jesal are hosts of the popular podcast, Yoga is Dead, a revolutionary podcast that explores power, privilege, fair pay, harassment, race, cultural appropriation and capitalism in the yoga and wellness worlds. You can connect with them on Instagram or Facebook or email them directly at email@example.com. You can support Tejal and Jesal by joining their Patreon community or supporting them on Venmo at @yogaisdeadpodcast.
