“Being a yoga renegade means we resist and, more importantly, we persist in challenging and changing the limited narrative of who does yoga and #whatayogilookslike as represented in the dominant culture—and far beyond the practice, culture and business of yoga into the culture at large. I believe there is a yoga renegade in all of us…”—Dianne Bondy, foreword of Yoga Rising
