united we practice

A FEW MONTHS AGO, I was settling onto my mat before my favorite yoga class, when I looked around the room and noticed, once again, that almost all of the other yogis waiting for class to start looked pretty similar to me: white, female, and relatively slim. It’s true that I live in Boulder, Colorado, a notoriously homogenous town. Even so, it was a subtle reminder that while yoga has the potential to unite us, it also has a reputation for being pretty exclusive. This is not new. When yoga first emerged in India, it was taught and practiced by men, and only men. But as the ancient practice migrated West, it evolved.

If you’re like most yogis, there’s a good chance the physical practice of yoga was what first got you hooked. Yet once you’re ready to dive deeper into this ancient tradition and explore its ultimate goal—self-realization—it can be tough to know where to begin. One great place to start: Gaia’s new 13-episode docuseries, Yogic Paths. Shot in India, each episode takes viewers to various ashrams and introduces some of the great yoga masters and scholars, including Geeta and Prashant Iyengar (B.K.S. Iyengar’s children), Anand Mehrotra (the founder of Sattva Yoga), and many more. “By interviewing these masters, we’ve captured thousands of years of ancient tradition on film,” says Ashleigh Sergeant, head of yoga content for Gaia. “This unprecedented access to teachers with connections to various yoga lineages helps you see…
