This is a class that will focus on yoga as a practice that has the potential to benefit the body and mind, rather than a practice that transports us out of a capitalist economy and into to an Eastern fantasy of purity and escape. At the same time, this class will try to position the practice of yoga within a historical framework that spans from its inception as a facet of a larger South Asian tradition to its appropriation by the West as a bourgeois pastime. Each class will be composed chiefly of movement, with brief discussion at the end. Optional reading materials will be provided. Open to all levels.
