The New/Old Yoga

Last week we were fortunate enough to have Dr Theo Wildcroft come in for our Emergent Spiritualities module to speak about her research on post lineage yoga. Theo provided students with a fascinating and engaging account of Yoga from the Indus valley, to Patanjali, through Indian independence right up to the festival fields of twenty first century Somerset! The picture that Theo painted was one of complexity and diversity that looked at the development of posture and philosophy as well as contemporary forms of yoga and associated social and cultural movements all of which demonstrated that Yoga as we think we know it may not be entirely the case. Many thanks Theo.
