Andrew explains what the new policy is and why it was implemented. J pushes back for a compelling talk on some aspects of the new policy, as well as other issues surrounding the YA, yoga teacher training, and the industry at large. This talk expands upon J's blog post for this month: Establishment Politics in Yoga.
