About This Event

The learning curve surrounding music and video copyright laws can be a challenge. This workshop offers a conversation about these concerns and explores what's possible as many professionals continue to take their endeavors online. Gain insight around why the copyright laws function the way they do, who dictates those laws, and how to bring compassion and awareness to this unusual and often fragmented ecosystem. Also, explore the historical role of music in yoga and its development and evolution as yoga and embodiment practices continue to grow and change due to Western influences.
