with Dr. Shyam Ranganathan (E-RYT 500, YACEP, MA, MA). This three-part workshop explores how yoga ethics may not be what many have come to expect in a Westernized world. Explore how yoga is a basic ethical theory that rivals familiar theories present in South Asia and the West, and how asana was not primarily a physical practice, but rather a philosophical exercise of ethics. Consider how colonialism continues to marginalize yoga ethics in contemporary discourse and make room for non-colonized yoga ethics. Part 1 focuses on yoga ethics and Western impositions.
