About Us

Welcome to Yoga Modern, an interactive online space that unites the yoga community in dialogue for global change. By exploring challenging questions through the lens of yoga, Yoga Modern cultivates meaningful conversation that inspires, educates, and connects communities.

Yoga Modern provides engaging, inquiry-based content around the deeper dimensions of yoga. Topics include, but are not limited to: asana, culture, philosophy, science, global affairs, health, and the arts. We invite yoga teachers, students, and notables from various backgrounds to write about universal aspects of our shared human existence.

Yoga Modern content reflects a sense of questioning and discovery. We feature rich, introspective writing that expresses how the yogic ideals apply in a modern world. We encourage writers to move beyond simple solutions, superficial summations, and showers of should’s. Yoga Modern is a space to come for heartfelt inspiration, deep inquiry, and ‘aha moments’ grounded in the joys and challenges of daily living.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us here.
