Your article “Yes You CAN Think Yourself Thin: From resisting that biscuit to learning to love the gym, a life-changing book reveals the new way to hit your perfect weight” not only saddened and disheartened me but, as an eating disorder survivor, deeply triggered me.

If you stuck it out until the end you might have caught the part about something brewing. (To be fair, there are a few things brewing—like a new YD offshoot website we're also super excited [...]

Yogactivism comes in waves. When there's a cause, there's sure to be a swell of yogis there to fight for it. But when it comes to the Black Lives Matter movement, the majority of the yoga community for whatever reason has gone from om to mum. Perhaps it's too political? Too controversial?
