Yoga Futures – My Latest IAYT Article
By Kristine Kaoverii Weber | April 15, 2022
Have you noticed I’ve been writing a lot about the future of yoga lately?
It’s mostly because I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time with Brett (my partner in crime) talking about this stuff, reading too many academic articles, staying up late writing, and generally annoying each other over details and word choices so that we could put out an article for the International Association of Yoga Therapist’s (IAYT) publication Yoga Therapy Today. I realize it is not bedtime reading – unless you’re an insomniac – then it might cure you because it’s a little…um… dense, I’m afraid.
But that’s because the topic – the future of yoga – is so big and so close to our hearts.
I hope you will have a read (you may need a big cup of coffee). And please let us know what you think.

I think your paper, you and Brett, is marvellous. It takes well known decision making tools and applies them so beautifully across personal, community, world wide and climate situations. It tackles the current culture of answering the question ‘how do I get a person with arthritis to do sun salutation ‘, as you mentioned recently, to completely redefining yoga as we know it. I am so pleased to be following your work and so pleased that you are up there with the powerful decision makers sharing these amazing ideas.
Thank you Debbie. That means a lot to me!
Kristine and Brett, you have so masterfully articulated the intricate web of our existence as individuals, communities and the cosmos. It was reassuring to me to delve deeper into Inayatullah’s work as I recalled touching the surface of his teachings in SYRS as well as Wilbur’s work. I will go through my notes and find these introductory teachings as well as re-read this thought provoking article that you two created. Such an honor to be your student🙏☮️🕉
Thanks Jane! Subodh’s work is truly amazing. I hope you enjoy reading some more of his stuff. xo
Amazing and informative article. I am deeply grateful that I have found such a knowledgeable teacher. Thank you for all your incredible research and and insights. I look forward to your future work.
Thank you so much Kathryn! xoxo
Congratulations, Kristine and Brett, on writing such a well-researched, thoughtful and articulate article. It’s so reassuring to read that I’m not the only one who sees yoga as the solution. My approach to practising and teaching yoga has changed throughout the years. I’ve come to know that showing up for myself everyday in daily sadhana has trickled down positively to the groups that I see every week here in Southern Ontario. Thanks for reminding me of FUTURE SHOCK. I saw it everyday on my mum and dad’s bookshelf, but never read it. It’s time! Bravo, you two!
Thank you Liz! Very much appreciate that you “get it”!
A wholehearted ‘YES’ to your quote: ‘Spiritual growth could be considered the most important measure of health, of human thriving and flourishing.’
Thank you for another thoughtful artlcle.
