Event Type

Class description
We often hear that yoga is 5000 years old. Historical evidence suggests most modern yoga poses are only 100 years old. Debates about "authenticity" in yoga can get contentious. This session will summarize recent debates about the history of yoga poses. It will connect modern yoga practice with yoga history.
