Yoga is just yoga, unless you are white. Then it is cultural appropriation:
To truly honor yoga, writes Michigan State University professor Shreena Gandhi, white Americans should understand its history, acknowledge the cultural appropriation they engage in, and possibly reduce the cost of yoga classes for poor people, a group that often includes people of color and “recent immigrants, such as Indian women to whom this practice rightfully belongs.”
BTW, those with Indian ancestry are the wealthiest ethnic group in the USA. They bring in 70% more than whites per household. But I’m forgetting; statistics are racist. The narrative requires viewing Indians as put-upon victims deserving of special consideration.
Gandhi coauthored a piece entitled “Yoga and the Roots of Cultural Appropriation” with Lillie Wolff. Wolff describes herself as an “antiracist white Jewish organizer, facilitator and healer” who is “passionate about decolonizing and politicizing yoga.” “Decolonizing” means purging it of unclean whiteness.
