Description
Yoga is everywhere these days. The yoga we practice today bears little resemblance to the yoga that began humbly almost 5,000 years ago, but in its rich and varied history, yoga has always evolved to meet the needs of the culture it serves. Linda Sparrowe's text follows the long and complex history of yoga. While it changed dramatically over many thousands of years certain concepts have always prevailed: the union of opposites; the affect the outside world has on the body; the yearning for and seeking of some form of liberation; and the interest in discovering and attaining one's true Self. Above all else, yoga has been and continues to be about the process of transformation. Following her clear and well-organised discussion of the evolution of yoga, rooted in the devotional and metaphysical teachings of the sacred yoga texts including the Vedas, Upanishads, and the Bhagavad-Gita, and progressing to an in-depth look at the philosophy of Patanjali, the father of modern yoga, Sparrowe addresses yoga in our modern world.Here are brief introductions to the 20th-century yogis who were influential in making yoga a western, indeed a world-wide, obsession: Swami Sivananda Saraswati, T Krishnamacharya, Pattabhi Jois, Indra Devi, B K S Iyengar, and T K V Desikachar. But the icing on this multi-tiered cake are the 400 poses, or asanas, artful black and white photographs taken especially for this book, that illustrate the relatively new development (within the past 150 years) of physical postures derived from an ancient Indian tradition.
