King book Mark Singleton calls into uestion many commonly held beliefs about the nature and origins of postural yoga asana and suggests a radically new way of understanding the meaning of yoga as it is practiced by millions of people across the world today Singleton shows that contrary to popular belief there is no evidence in the Indian tradition for the kind of health and fitness oriented asana practice that dominates the global yoga scene of the twenty first century Singleton's surprising and surely controversial thesis is that yoga as it is popularly practiced today owes a greater debt to modern Indian nationalism and even.

    Paperback Ù Yoga Body ePUB Ì yoga epub, body pdf, Yoga Body KindleYoga Body The Origins of Modern Posture PracticeI had to add the subtitle bc for some reason goodreads didn't And it's really pretty important imo Because this is NOT just another yoga history book that focuses on the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita and blahdeblah This is an incredibly documented history of modern yoga practice the practice you get at Yoga Tree or Yoga Mayu or wherever the heck you practice in whatever city you live Whatever the lineage you practice Ashtanga Vinyasa Jivamukti Anusara Iyengar they ALL owe their historical dues to well to a history that you might not expect How much DID the ancient yoga texts discuss physical practice Why IS it that when most people think of yoga today they only think of pretzel posesI don't want to give much away because the book is so fascinating to read ALTHOUGH CAVEAT it's very academic and assum

    Paperback Ù Yoga Body ePUB Ì yoga epub, body pdf, Yoga Body KindleThis book is ok It has lots of great info but there are some problems Singleton tries to cram so much research and history into 200 pages that it comes off like a whirlwind tour through a bunch of stuff that most people will not be even slightly familiar with The book might have done well to be like 500 pages On the other hand Singleton's writing veers from captivating and insightful to reminding me of my college research papers ie here's my thesis here's my evidence here are my references here's my summary

    Paperback Ù Yoga Body ePUB Ì yoga epub, body pdf, Yoga Body KindleAlready two years old though I was aware of the general gist of this amazingly well researched book I only just got to read it and have learned so much about the specifics of the history of asana and how it's come to be practiced as it is in the contemporary 'yoga world' As Gary Krafstow writes work offers a much needed historical perspective that will help correct much of the mythology and group think that is emerging in the modern asana based 'yoga world'Sadly I've still not seen this information getting through to most practitioners OR teachers AND what's even those who are familiar with this book often don't understand it's deeper significance And of course there are the 'true believing' deniers who simply cannot abide with the fact that their precious practice isn't truly rooted in antiuity So if you are a teacher of yoga it

    Paperback Ù Yoga Body ePUB Ì yoga epub, body pdf, Yoga Body KindleYoga Body is a mixed bag It is a scholarly book that dives deep into the physical culture of India in the late 19th and early 20th century It is such a scholarly book in fact that I can't tell you how many times I fell asleep reading it I am deeply interested in Singleton's chosen topic but the writing is so dry that I ended up being slightly bored and mostly disappointed Which isn't to say that I disagree with his conclusion just that it could ha

    Paperback Ù Yoga Body ePUB Ì yoga epub, body pdf, Yoga Body KindleI was excited to stumble across this book because it proposed fresh insights into the history and development of posture centric yoga Singleton’s premise is that yoga as it’s practiced in studios around the world today ie practices focused heavily on asana or postures has almost nothing to do with historic yogic traditions and is to a large extent European or Western fitness practices fed back to the world with a patina of Indian ness instilled by a few Indian fitness teachers eg T Krishnamacharya and students This is a bold and stunning hypothesis The problem is that Singleton leaves plenty of room to doubt h
