A much needed look at privilege and power in the Western yoga community- this book collects essays from yoga practitioners who don’t fit the traditional view of Western yogis. The essays are short and fun to read. This collection provided me with some much needed inspiration for my practice.

Really good. Not as whiny, privileged and academic-minded (after all, this is about commercial classes and yoga culture; and co-written by a college professor—not about yoga the practice) as I'd suspected it would be.

Consciousness-raising has no minimum or maximum net worth and is not passé. Marianne Elliot, in particular struck a chord and went one better on shame (experienced in yoga) in her essay than Gary Zukav ever would.
