Yoga Through the Ages
Sunday, February 3rd, 9am-12pm
What are the oldest poses and which ones were made up yesterday?
Was the Buddha a yogi?
When did asana practice reach the US?
To what extent are our received stories about yoga history romanticized “alternative fact”?
This workshop will explore these questions and more in a whirlwind tour of texts, teachers, and traditions from 2500 B.C.E. to the ever-changing modern moment. You will gain new ways to think through the (mis/dis)information about yoga and other unfolding personal and community histories.
*Fee includes 4500-year timeline and a list of recommended books, articles, videos, and films on the topic.
