On Yoga's 'Race Problem': Has The Practice Become Too White?

“Every time I’d see a black woman on the cover of Yoga Journal…I was very aware of their presence because it was such an anomaly to see someone other than a white woman.” ~ Chelsea Loves Yoga Jackson, PhD

Why Your Yoga Class Is So White

“You go to classes and you’re the only black person, or there are very few,” said Robin Rollan, who practices yoga in New York and D.C. and runs the popular blog Black Yogis. “People who find my blog say, ‘I thought I was the only one.’”

Also for your consideration:

  • Studios are heavily concentrated in wealthy white neighborhoods creating “yoga deserts”
  • Avg cost of 1-hour class in LA — $17
  • Avg cost for mat — $20 (forget about Manduka…)
  • Price of lululemon yoga pants that prolly ain’t in yo’ size — wait for it — $82
