Yoga and White Public Space

Please join us for this informal presentation by MMaP scholar-in-residence Dr. Rumya Putcha, assistant professor of women’s studies and music at the University of Georgia.

Goat yoga, beer yoga, trap yoga, holy yoga, museum yoga. These are just a few examples of the way yoga has become domesticated in the Anglo-American context, particularly in public spaces. This talk explores how that happened and what it reveals about yoga as well as the way we think about public space.

The event will take place virtually via Zoom and YouTube livestream.
