Get ready to have your mind blown. Jesal Parikh is the co-host of the provocative podcast “Yoga is Dead.” She and her co-host Tejal Patel, highlight injustices of the digestion of yoga by modern Western culture. In this episode, Jessica and Jesal explore the process of historical Indian yoga and how that has morphed into a different animal in Western society. Jesal names names trends of the colonization of yoga and how South Asians are taking it back.
Enjoy this highly nuanced conversation about how power, privilege, race and economic shifts have created a yoga industry out of an ancient practice.
