Hey there, it's been a while since I blogged anything here. Sorry, for that. I've been super busy with this project winding up trying to write as much as I can and also apply for jobs. 8 weeks out and still not sure what happens next...
Let me know if you wan't to give me a job :-)
Anyways, there are a few articles about this research project that are in press or soon to be submitted to journals. It's a slow process.
I've enjoyed my time in Kyoto too much. I don't want to leave, actually. But, who knows where we end up next.
So, even though this page might become a bit more quiet, there will still be articles being published over the next 1-2 years. If I do get a job in Japan then it will make it a lot easier to continue on with this project.
My next paper on Yoga in Japan will be a book chapter appearing in the sequel to this book, titled, Masculinities in the Field, my contribution looks at my toil being a white guy in Japan trying to do research on yoga. It's titled: Gaijin Smash in Yogaland: A Cautionary Tale of a White Guy's Perspective on Yoga-Related Fieldwork in Japan

are you feeling generous?
I've been invited to become a part of the brand new Center for #Yoga Studies at Hamburg University in Germany. This is a great initiative to push research into yoga into the places I want to take it. It would also give me the opportunity to teach and take on some PhD students to train. The catch is... we need money. We are applying for funding, but if you'd like to donate, here is the information https://www.aai.uni-hamburg.de/en/yogastudies/foerderung.html … #philanthropy
The academic conference is scheduled to occur on 11 and 12 JULY
at Yoshida Izumidono, Kyoto University. It is located at #76 on this map.
We are also organising some conference-related events:
@ Spirit Yoga (OSAKA) between 10am-1pm of 9 July
10 July 2pm - 5pm @ Studio bindu in Kyoto
These non-academic events are for Dr Christa Kuberry and Danielle Hayes from Yoga Alliance to hold QnA sessions at local studios.
All these events will streamed live.
