Yoga: As Safe As We Think?

Rebecca damages her skeptic street-cred by revealing her interest in yoga and Cat, as a yoga teacher, encourages her and makes the odd adjustment.

In this episode we talk about yoga from ancient to modern and reflect on our own yoga practices. We discuss yoga’s possible dangers (from brain damage to sexual assault) and reflect on it’s benefits (from physiotherapeutic to spiritual).

We even dare to raise the contentious issue of cultural appropriation, you have been warned.

Exploring esoteric, paranormal and spiritual topics from two completely different perspectives it’s The Seeker and The Skeptic.
