Yoga Journal - - ANATOMY -

We need to talk about lead­er­ship in yoga. While dis­cus­sions heat up about teach­ing stan­dards, sex­ual mis­con­duct, in­clu­siv­ity, body pos­i­tiv­ity, the com­mer­cial­iza­tion of the prac­tice, and more, we’ve seen some old lead­ers fall, and at the same time, new cham­pi­ons have emerged. In light of all this, Yoga Jour­nal set out to talk to some of to­day’s pre­em­i­nent voices in Western yoga about lead­er­ship—what it looks like, how it has evolved (or de­volved), and what the yoga com­mu­nity needs right now.

Our goal: Help cre­ate a roadmap for heal­ing from pain, mis­trust, and in­jus­tice and chart a more con­scious path for­ward, while main­tain­ing the in­tegrity of the prac­tice.
