Thank you for sharing this important perspective. I live in a town fairly crawling with white yoga instructors (and massage therapists, and Reiki healers, you get the drift). I want to find a way to share and learn from other cultures while still being respectful. But bringing up the fact that this might be…problematic…isn’t exactly welcomed. So I just do my yoga stretches at home (or wherever) by myself.
