cultural appropriation: triyoga talks episode 35

Yoga’s roots are generally accepted to be found in India where it has developed over the course of 2,500 years, influenced by the country’s diverse religions and practices. It is now practiced by millions around the world, and can be done in ways that are wholly appreciative and respectful, but unfortunately also in ways that do not acknowledge the source or recognise the essence of yoga.

In this triyoga talks podcast, we sat down with Ayurvedic chef Mira Manek, yoga teacher Savira Gupta and yoga teacher/osteopath Anji Gopal – three British women of Indian heritage to hear their views on the differences between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation in how yoga is taught and practised in the West, and how respectful exchange of tradition and practice ultimately enrich and benefit many.

Spoiler alert – we talk about how to make the perfect Dahl!
