Yoga Revolution: Yoga & Social Justice with Anjali Rao

Season #1

This week's guest is Anjali Rao, a yoga teacher, social justice activist, community organizer, multi-cultural training specialist, and cancer survivor. Anjali is an Indian American from Bangalore, India. Her work explores yoga philosophy and history, integrating marginalized voices using storytelling, imagery, and poetry.

Jivana and Anjali discuss the intersection of yoga and social justice in the context of the modern world, capitalism, and the yogic texts (the Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras). Anjali also offers her wisdom about how to use our yoga practice to "bridge divides" within our many communities.
