Recently I watched a video Exploring Yoga and the Impacts of Cultural Appropriation. And it blew my mind.
I’m still working through all the emotions and feelings that this video evoked in me at the time, but I’m also reading more and exploring more on the original yogic teachings, cultural appropriation, what it means in my practice and how I could be perpetuating this harmful cycle myself.
If you practice yoga, then highly recommend you watch this video. Even if you don’t practice yoga, it’s still a very interesting and humbling video.
Thank you nisha ahuja for opening my mind and prompting me to explore what yoga really is and means. It’s so much more than a workout for tight abs or Instagram selfies and Lululemon tights.
In the words of Kendrick Lamar, sit down, be humble.
