Is practicing yoga a spiritual endeavor, a workout, or both? This discussion investigates how yoga and meditation have evolved in New York and the West, what these adaptations can tell us about our complex city lives, and how these ancient practices are being used in new, unusual ways to create powerful change. Featuring Paul Keoni Chun (yoga teacher, actor and movement artist), Devirose (meditation and yoga teacher and devotional singer), Anjula Prasad (devotional singer and kirtan leader), and Tim Tompkins (President of the Times Square Alliance and initiator of Solstice in Times Square). Moderated by Joshua Greene (filmmaker, Living Yoga).
Produced by the Asian American Arts Alliance in collaboration with New York Insight Meditation Center. Funded by the New York Council for the Humanities.
This talk is supported in part by the New York Council for the Humanities.
