Today's episode is part of a mini-series of interviews done in the context of the topics of my new book, That Little Voice in Your Head, available now: mogawdat.com/littlevoice
I speak with Nadia Gilani, a writer, yoga teacher, and in my designation, a yoga activist. Nadia has noticed not only yoga's rising popularity, but also how its modern incarnation no longer serves people of color, working class people, or many other groups who originally pioneered its creation. The Yoga Manifesto is her first book. Combining her own memories of how the practice has helped her with an account of its history and transformation in the modern west, she creates a love letter to yoga and a passionate critique of the billion-dollar industry whose cost and inaccessibility has shut out many of those it should be helping.
