The Yoga Room is a place for exploring the meaning and relevance of yoga in the here and now. Appreciating yoga as a holistic practice, we actively engage ideas from within and outside the yoga-verse – from science and mythology, pedagogy and politics, aesthetics and ecology, and most of all from the experience of living – all with the aim of deeper understanding, clearer awareness, and more meaningful lives.

Tens of millions of people worldwide do yoga. With a seemingly infinite array of styles and techniques to match our diverse conditions and intentions, there are many ways people connect with yoga – and just as many ways that we can consciously connect yoga with our larger lives. Mark’s monologues and conversations with well-known and hidden or emergent voices from around the world evoke a rich expression of ideas about nuances of yoga and our relationships with ourselves and one another.
