Episode Info:

Tejal Patel and Jesal Parikh met years ago in a training in NYC. They were both relieved to finally make a Desi yoga teacher friend who could relate to each other's experiences with yoga in America vs. yoga in India, and to have someone to bitch to about the cultural appropriation, racism, exploitation and general belittling that they experienced in that training and in many others. But after a few years of having these conversations in hushed tones so as not to offend their white colleagues, they decided it was high time their voices and experiences were heard. They created the Yoga is Dead podcast as a way to jumpstart critical conversations, elevate oppressed voices and perspectives and to expose the problems felt by anyone who isn’t in the “in” crowd of the yoga industry.
