This article has been a long time coming. I’ve been grappling with my distaste for yoga and spirituality magazines for some time. Being a bit of a glass house and not wanting to throw stones, I’ve kept quiet. But you know that I could only stay quiet for so long.

This superficial pop culture of yoga is good for one thing – It can (if you’re willing to do the work) lead you away from itself and toward a space that is big enough to hold all of your suffering and your happiness.
