Religious Studies professor Andrea Jain is back on the podcast — this time to talk to Jason about her new book, “Peace Love Yoga: The Politics of Global Spiritualization.” Jain’s book explores the connection between global spirituality and neoliberalism. While Jain acknowledges that yoga is healthy practice, she’s concerned by the ways in which modern yoga (she uses the U.S., Canada, and India as examples) has been commodified and packaged to encourage complacency (think: “good vibes only” culture) and often overshadows the action that’s required to create a more equitable world. It’s an eye-opening interview hosted by Jason.
