Aisha Nash on anti-diet yoga: triyoga talks episode 37

Aisha Nash is an award-winning pastry chef who left behind the high-stress world of Michelin-starred restaurants to become a yoga teacher. As a teacher, however, she did not feel welcome in most modern yoga studios, which she says are not properly reflective of what yoga is, and who it is for.

In this triyoga talks podcast, Aisha spoke about how the word “fat” has unnecessarily become an insult, and how people living in large bodies can feel excluded in a yoga class. She spoke about freeing ourselves from diet culture not just in January but beyond, why weight does not necessarily equate to health, and how the BMI (body mass index) is inherently flawed and racist.
