Spiritual Work in a Material World: The Business of Yoga

A Long Table Conversation with Iana Velez of NY YOGA + LIFE magazine

Saturday, September 28, 2019
11:15 AM–12:00 PM

Join Iana Velez, publisher and editor in Chief of NY YOGA + LIFE magazine, and a panel of leaders in the NYC yoga and wellness industry as we explore the money-related questions and challenges many people working in yoga and wellness face today in an honest and open dialogue. Panelists will talk frankly about the power dynamics inherent in teacher payment structures and the complexities of combining spiritual work and making money.

The Rubin Museum invites you to take a seat at the table. Throughout our Year of Power, we are hosting The Long Table, an open-source participatory project conceived by artist and activist Lois Weaver, which provides a forum for visitors and community groups to engage in a series of conversations on sharing power.

The Long Table is supported by Shelley and Donald Rubin.
