Well researched document of the evolution of modern yoga
on 22 November 2016
I'm a yoga teacher and I'm also doing a PhD. I liked reading about the history of modern yoga and how we got to where we are today. I think it's important to understand the development so you get where all the teachings are coming from, and appreciate that "modern yoga" isn't entirely authentic. If you are delving into cultural appropriation topics then this is a must-read book! I still think that's okay, but I'm glad to know its true development. I also loved that this is essentially a published PhD thesis - very cleverly reimagined as a non-fiction book I would sit and read from start to finish (tons of references!)!
