“We believe that it is valuable to look at yoga in North American today because we find that a lot of writing on yoga traditionally looks back to the past.” ~Carol Horton
Written by experienced practitioners who are also teachers, therapists, activists, scholars, studio owners, and interfaith ministers, 21st Century Yoga: Culture, Politics & Practice is one of the first books to provide a multi-faceted examination of yoga as it actually exists in contemporary North America. Making news around the yoga community, this new book of essays from yogis all across the continent is certainly a must for your Fall reading list—and you can participate in a virtual book club, sparking intelligent conversation around it’s contents, right here on elephant journal.
We were thrilled to welcome the brains & editors behind this groundbreaking new book Roseanne Harvey of itsallyogababy.com and Carol Horton, PhD to our show. Roseanne and Carol talked with enthusiasm about 21st Century Yoga, and as our host, Jessica, mentioned: this is only the beginning of the conversation!
