Racism and Yoga

I have two thoughts on this:

1) "If you don't like the offerings, make your own" is a great solution in most circumstances.

2) Let's just take a moment to observe the spectacular irony of people of color feeling unwelcome in yoga, which was invented by people of color.  Indians are light brown to very nearly black.  Just because lots of white people like yoga, doesn't mean they invented it.
