Yoga is practiced by many millions of people worldwide and is celebrated for its mental, physical, and spiritual benefits. And yet, much of what is said about yoga is misleading. For example, the word "yoga" does not always mean union. In fact, in perhaps the discipline's most famous text―the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali―its aim is described as separation: isolating consciousness from everything else. And yoga is not five thousand years old, as is commonly claimed; the earliest evidence of practice dates back about twenty-five hundred years. (Yoga may well be older, but no one can prove it.) Love yoga? Want to learn everything you can about it? In this accessible and engaging book, Amy Vaughn applies her decades of education and research to tell the story of yoga. From shamanism to Shakti, from the Vedas to vinyasa, you'll learn about the history and philosophy of yoga while enjoying Amy's straightforward and lighthearted style. This book is perfect for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of the yoga tradition.

A comprehensive and theory-rich investigation of the history and philosophy of yoga, from its Indian origins to the contemporary context. Clear, accessible, and meticulously annotated, Tracing the Path of Yoga offers a comprehensive survey of the history and philosophy of yoga that will be invaluable to both specialists and to nonspecialists seeking a deeper understanding of this fascinating subject. Stuart Ray Sarbacker argues that yoga can be understood first and foremost as a discipline of mind and body that is represented in its narrative and philosophical literature as resulting in both numinous and cessative accomplishments that correspond, respectively, to the attainment of this-worldly power and otherworldly liberation. Sarbacker demonstrates how the yogic quest for perfection as such is situated within the concrete realities of human life, intersecting with issues of politics, economics, class, gender, and sexuality, as well as reflecting larger Indic religious and philosophical ideals. Stuart Ray Sarbacker is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Oregon State University. He is the author of Samādhi: The Numinous and Cessative in Indo-Tibetan Yoga, also published by SUNY Press, and (with Kevin Kimple) The Eight Limbs of Yoga: A Handbook for Living Yoga Philosophy.

Pop Culture Yoga: A Communication Remix was born out of a series of questions about the paradoxical nature of yoga: How do individuals and groups define yoga? What does it mean to "practice yoga", and what does this practice involve? What are some of the most important principles, guidelines, or philosophical tenets of yoga that shape people's definitions and practices? Who has the power and authority to define yoga? What are the limits, if any, of shared definitions of yoga? Kristen C. Blinne explores the myriad ways "yoga" is communicatively constructed and defined in and through popular culture in the United States. In doing so, Blinne offers insight into the many identity work processes in play in the construction of yoga categories, illuminating how individuals' and groups' words and actions represent practices of claiming--part of a complex communicative process centered around membership categorization--based on a range of authenticity discourses. Employing popular culture writing styles, Blinne ultimately contends that the majority of yoga styles practiced in the United States are remixes that can be classified as pop culture yoga, a distinct way of understanding this complex phenomenon.
