with CEO and Co-founder of YogiTunes.com Alex King-Harris. The learning curve surrounding music and video copyright laws can be a challenge.

Also, explore the historical role of music in yoga and its development and evolution as yoga and embodiment practices continue to grow and change due to Western influences.
with Dr. Anya Foxen and Yoga Alliance’s Vice President of Standards Dr. Christa Kuberry (E-RYT 500). Dr. Anya Foxen and Dr. Christa Kuberry visit concepts, histories, and the complexities of modern yoga practice. Their recent book Is This Yoga? asks readers to get comfortable with the contradictions that are inherent in yoga’s past and present. Both authors provide us with a rigorously researched and accessible view that is flexible enough to move between and amongst a variety of definitions, understandings, and practices of yoga. This book explicitly strives to center the idea of diversity, conversation, and change when it comes to the story of yoga as we continue to critically question—is this yoga at all? Is This Yoga? is essential reading for undergraduate students approaching the topic for the first time, as well as yoga teachers, teacher training programs, casual and devoted practitioners, and interested non-practitioners.
