The Story of Yoga Poses:
How Dance, Myth, and Subtle Science Made ‘em
Know posemaking’s big names? How asanas came to be? If they’re magical? Got medical effects? Antedeluvian origins? Or if they just make us pretty?
This lecture shows the waggingly wide range of influences that shaped yoga posture over centuries– from archeology, ancient texts, movement arts, modern biography and the science of Kundalini.
We’ll start with kickbutt asanas from 5000 years ago and end with debates from the contemporary headlines.
Confuse friends, excite in-laws and sweeten your enemies with this wisely-composed stack of facts and figures from near and distant yoga history.
