How Old Are Yoga Poses?

90 minutes
The Marsh
Event Type

We often hear that yoga is 5000 years old. Historical evidence suggests that many modern yoga poses only emerged in the twentieth century. Debates about "authenticity" in yoga can get contentious. This workshop provides an accessible introduction to the history of modern yoga poses and summarizes recent debates. Throughout this interactive workshop you will be invited to practice yoga poses, share your ideas, and reflect on your beliefs about yoga history.
