Modern Yoga and its Contexts

9 - 10 Mar '17 6:30 - 8:30 pm

Over the past 150 years, yoga has increasingly developed within transnational contexts that have reshaped its practice and theory in sometimes radical ways. These two lectures will consider some of yoga's recent history, as well as the theoretical problems associated with its academic study. Focusing particularly on early modern experiments in yoga in India and abroad, we will look at a number of key moments in yoga's global dissemination.

Day 1: 9th March, 2017
The Contexts of Modern Yoga

Day 2: 10th March, 2017
The Body at the Centre: Contexts of Postural Yoga in the Modern Age

 
 
 

Mark Singleton

Dr. Mark Singleton is Senior Research Fellow in the department of Languages and Cultures of South Asia, SOAS, University of London, where he works on the Indian and transnational history of hathayoga. His research focuses on the tensions between tradition and modernity in yoga, and the transformations that yoga has undergone in recent centuries in response to globalization. He has published book chapters, journal articles and encyclopedia entries on yoga, several edited volumes of scholarship, and a monograph entitled Yoga Body: 'The Origins of Modern Posture Practice' (2010). His latest book (with James Mallinson) is 'Roots of Yoga' (Penguin 2017).
