PRACTICE & POLITICS / What is the history of political activism in the yoga community? What forces might lead a yogi to shy away from engaging with the current socio-political situation? How can we understand our yoga practice as integrated with the goal of intersubjective communication and a healthier public realm?

Join Social Justice Scholar and Activist Carol Horton as she reflects on all of this and more in our latest edition of the Practice and Politics Series of SADHAKA.

This is the 3rd conversation in a 5-Day Series exploring the intersection of yoga, spirituality and politics.
