Roopa Singh – Restoring Yoga to its South Asian Roots
Huffington Post has an extensive interview with Roopa Singh, founder of SAAPYA – South Asian- American Perspectives on Yoga in America and owner of the health and wellness center Third Root. In the interview, Roopa talks about the appropriation “by the West of India as a spiritual home” and her recent study of “Yoga Journal”. She found that there was never a South Asian person on the cover and very few articles written by desis. The goal of SAAPYA, the first network and platform for South Asian-American Practitioners of Yoga in America, is to bring yoga back to the stewardship of the South Asian diaspora communities.
