How do we co-create safer yoga and spiritual communities?
Through dogged investigative work, careful listening to survivor stories
of assault and abuse, and close analysis of the cultic mechanisms at play
in the sphere of Pattabhi Jois’s Ashtanga community, Matthew Remski’s
Practice and All Is Coming offers a sober view into a collective and intergenerational

It also offers a clear pathway forward into enhanced critical thinking,
student empowerment, self-and-other care, and community resilience.
Concluding with practical tools for a world rocked by abuse revelations,
Practice and All Is Coming opens a window on the possibility of healing–
and even re-enchantment.“

„Sheds light on the sexual and physical assault that has taken place in the yoga community, while providing a resource that helps teachers and students recognize when they may be in an unsafe situation and empowers them to protect themselves …. required reading for every yoga teacher training.“  — Trina Altman
