Abstract: (Show)
Yoga, the Body, and Embodied Social Change examines the cultural phenomenon of yoga in the United States through an intersectional feminist lens. The essays in this collection address media portrayals as well as yoga spaces themselves, analyzing who has been centered and who has been marginalized by racial, gender, sexual, economic and dis/ability power dynamics. By analyzing contemporary body politics in the U.S. yoga sphere, Yoga, the Body, and Embodied Social Change looks at both the limitations and possibilities of yoga for feminist social justice.
