217 Indu Vashist: Power, postures & practice - yoga asana history and modern understandings

This week we welcome Indu Vashist to the podcast for a conversation on the history of yoga asana, and how it has been informed by physical culture, power dynamics, caste, and artistic exploration. Indu shares new insights into cultural appropriation, the difference between yoga's physical history and philosophical history, demystifying the asana practice, and using it for good in this day in age.

Indu Vashist is a yoga teacher, historian, and executive director of the South Asian Visual Arts Centre in Toronto. She has studied the history of yoga and it's intersections with physical culture extensively and brings new insights to the topics of asana, appropriation, and how yoga is being practiced today worldwide.
