[EP:26] The Dark Side of Yoga - Amber B Skylar

It's important to keep your eyes wide open, in anything really.  Yoga is just one activity that is easy to target people because of our romanticization of how things are done in the East.   Most people believe yoga came from India.  It did not.  Furthermore, stop glamorizing India.  Its treatment of women is deplorable.  It was women who brought yoga to older women in the US, but since women were not "allowed" or sacred enough, we give credit to a man with long dark hair, with white linen flowing clothing and the easy to lead groups of people followed blindly.   So much to learn.  Look up "the dark side of yoga".
