with Hari-kirtana das (E-RYT 500, YACEP), Reggie Hubbard, and Amy Ippoliti (E-RYT 500, YACEP).2020 was a tumultuous year for many, including the yoga community.

In this conversation, leading yoga teachers Amy Ippoliti, Hari-kirtana das, and yogic activist Reggie Hubbard discuss the foundations of yoga and how we can begin to heal this divide and move forward with truth, integrity, and compassion.
with with Susanna Barkataki (E-RYT 500, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP, C-IAYT), Rina Deshpande (Ed.M., MS.T., E-RYT 500), Kelley Palmer, Luvena Rangel Krishnamurthy, and Dr. Tria Blu Wakpa.With the conﬂuence of Yoga teachers of various lineages and cultures, the Cultural Appropriation Track at this conference invites practitioners to explore questions and nuances raised within the context of Yoga and cultural appropriation. We will consider the ﬁne line between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. We will also assess the impacts within the Indian and South Asian diasporic context as well as within Black and Indigenous Native American cultures. Cultural appropriation involves a degeneration of primordial cultural rituals and wisdom, so we will also explore the depth, creativity, and richness of indigenous rites and practices that are often missing from Modern Postural Yoga practices. We will explore and practice restoration of ancestral wisdom and other Yogic cultural elements.
