I have also put my inputs and shared my thoughts about my experience and beliefs regarding the transformation of yoga as a whole in western culture. I go in depth about the different extensions of yoga such as animal yoga, substance yoga, hot yoga etc… and shared some of my opinions and concerns regarding the growing popularity of these practices. πŸ§˜πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸ½ Often, the question raised is how far these new streams can depart from traditional practice and still remain yoga. Read on to see what all authors have to say and to spark your own thoughts on the changes we’re seeing.
