new directions in north american yoga: IAYB & carol horton in NYC

It’s rare for the blogger to step out from behind the computer and interact with the world. But that’s just what will be happening in New York City, when I team up with 21st Century Yoga co-editor and friend, Carol Horton, for a couple of discussions about hot topics in the yoga world.

If you’re in NYC on May 19 and 20, come on out for New Directions in North American Yoga. The legendary YogaDork will host the May 19th event, and provocative blogger J. Brown will host on May 20th. This is what we’ll be talking about:

Yoga today is changing – and fast. Once-powerful gurus are falling. New alternatives are snowballing. Why are these changes happening? What do they matter? 

Join Carol Horton and Roseanne Harvey, co-editors of “21st Century Yoga: Culture, Politics, and Practice,” for a provocative discussion of the current paradigm shift in yoga culture. Key topics include 1) representing the “yoga body,” 2) re-envisioning the “guru,” and 3) revitalizing Karma yoga. Come add your voice to what promises to be an important conversation on the cutting edge of thoughtful yoga practice today! 

Whoa, right? Two events, same content each night. And here’s where we’ll be doing it:

Monday, May 19th 
7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
Abhyasa Yoga Center 
628 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211

Tuesday, May 20th
7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
tascbar
309 East 108th St #1A
New York, NY 10029
