About This Event
Dr. Anya Foxen and Dr. Christa Kuberry visit concepts, histories, and the complexities of modern yoga practice. Their recent book Is This Yoga? asks readers to get comfortable with the contradictions that are inherent in yoga’s past and present. Both authors provide us with a rigorously researched and accessible view that is flexible enough to move between and amongst a variety of definitions, understandings, and practices of yoga. This book explicitly strives to center the idea of diversity, conversation, and change when it comes to the story of yoga as we continue to critically question—is this yoga at all? Is This Yoga? is essential reading for undergraduate students approaching the topic for the first time, as well as yoga teachers, teacher training programs, casual and devoted practitioners, and interested non-practitioners.
