saapya, winter 2014

opening the door, browning yoga

it's only been 6 months since saapya made headlines at the brecht forum in nyc, with a panel of five south asian american yoga teachers, an event co-hosted by third root education exchange.  we are continuing the buzz, here's a sense of how: 

  • the saapya selfie project: a photography and oral history effort to intervene in the relative white out in yoga imagery, and to document south asian yoga heads)
  • saapya organizing south asian youth: saapya is happy to be on the organizing committee for DC/NYC Desi Summer, a political education camp for south asian youth)
  • the yoga domain project: arts installations online that treat the website as a canvas, a medium through which saapya can be a stronger channel for more brown content on yoga.  saapya is working on sites like:,, and
  • grants and conference proposalssaapya is working to show up, from the bay to pittsburgh, to nyc
  • fundraising within community: saapya is asking you, our community, to chip in to our indiegogo crowd funding effort.  only a couple days left to donate, and every bit of your support counts! click here, or on the colorlines press shot, to pledge your support
