I am a writer and yoga teacher living and raising kids in Telluride, CO. In 2018, I left a career as a professor of political theory at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to move out West with my family. I have been a researcher, writer, consultant, yoga instructor and educator for over twelve years.
I teach the physical practice of yoga, as well as its history and philosophy. More recently, I have written as a cultural critic of many aspects of yoga in the West, but continue to practice and teach yoga as someone who lives within and struggles against the deep contradictions of yoga as a philosophy and as a way of life in the West. I hope some of what you find here is helpful on your own journey.
