I recently left a career as a professor of political theory at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I taught courses in sexuality and gender, democratic theory, ancient and modern political thought, theories of justice, and many others, to relocate to the Bay Area with my family. I have been a researcher, writer, consultant, and educator for over ten years, specializing. I have also been a teacher of the physical practice of yoga and of yoga philosophy and history for ten years. More recently, I have written more as a cultural critic of many aspects of yoga in the West, but continue to practice and to teach yoga from that perspective when the opportunity arises. I hope some of what you find here is helpful on your own journey.
