Post Lineage Yoga with Theo Wildcroft.
2nd April 2019
This week we were privileged to host Theo Wildcroft whose research expertise and actual practice engage with contemporary forms of yoga that transcend the high street, commercialised and USP obsessed manifestations that have emerged in recent years. Students were offered a fascinating insight in the development of yoga as a philosophy and physical/therapeutic practice in India and the west as well as examining its politicisation and commercialisation over the last century or so. We were then given a really in depth account of new forms of post lineage yoga, the various ethical and philosophical positions that underpin them and the ways in which the counter culture movement has embraced and been moulded by the concept of yoga not only in the 60’s but also on the emergent spiritual landscape of today.
