Lori Hunter’s Class Examines the Sociology of Yoga

Lori M. Hunter, professor of sociology at the University of Colorado Boulder, has spent a semester prompting students to grapple with such questions as "What is colonization, and what does it mean to “decolonize” something?", "Beyond taking land, what other aspects of a culture can be colonized?", and "What does this have to do with yoga?." Her course is called “Yoga, Culture & Society,” an upper-division class designed to hone students’ critical-thinking-skills, and is discussed in depth in an article in Colorado Arts and Sciences Magazine.  This article generated so much interest that Lori is also featured in the Coloradoan ~ "A Yogi in the Classroom".
