From Counterculture to Pop Culture

Premodern and early modern yoga comprise techniques with a wide range of aims, from turning inward in quest of the true self, to turning outward for divine union, to channeling bodily energy in pursuit of sexual pleasure. Early modern yoga also encompassed countercultural beliefs and practices. In contrast, today, modern yoga aims at the enhancement of the mind-body complex but does so according to contemporary dominant metaphysical, health, and fitness paradigms. Consequently, yoga is now a part of popular culture. In Selling Yoga, Andrea R. Jain explores the popularization of yoga in the context of late-twentieth-century consumer culture. She departs from conventional approaches by undermining essentialist definitions of yoga as well as assumptions that yoga underwent a linear trajectory of increasing popularization. While some studies trivialize popularized yoga systems by reducing them to the mere commodification or corruption of what is perceived as an otherwise fixed, authentic system, Jain suggests that this dichotomy oversimplifies the history of yoga as well as its meanings for contemporary practitioners. By discussing a wide array of modern yoga types, from Iyengar Yoga to Bikram Yoga, Jain argues that popularized yoga cannot be dismissed--that it has a variety of religious meanings and functions. Yoga brands destabilize the basic utility of yoga commodities and assign to them new meanings that represent the fulfillment of self-developmental needs often deemed sacred in contemporary consumer culture.

"In Peace Love Yoga, Jain analyses growing spiritual industries and their coherence with neoliberal capitalism. "Personal growth," "self-care," and "transformation" are just some of the generative tropes in the narrative of these industries. Jain illuminates the power dynamics underlying what she calls neoliberal spirituality, illustrating how spiritual commodities are rooted in concerns about deviancy, not only in the form of low productivity but also forms of social deviancy. Jain, however, does not just offer one more voice bemoaning the commodification of spirituality as a numbing device through which consumers ignore the problems of neoliberal capitalism or as the corruption or loss of "authentic" religious forms. Instead, she asks what we should make of subversive spiritual discourses that call on adherents to think beyond the individual and even out into the environment, claims to counter the problems of unbridled capitalism with charitable giving or "conscious capitalism," challenges to the imperialism behind the appropriation and commodification of products from yoga to mindfulness, calls for women's empowerment, and efforts to greenwash commodities, making them more environmentally "friendly" or "sustainable." Rather than a mode through which consumers ignore, escape, or are numbed to the problems of neoliberal capitalism, many spiritual commodities, corporations, and entrepreneurs, Jain suggests, do actually acknowledge those problems and, in fact, subvert them; but they subvert them through mere gestures. From provocative taglines printed across t-shirts or packaging to calls for "conscious capitalism," commodification serves as a strategy through which subversion itself is contained"--

The essential guide to correcting yoga misconceptions and avoiding injuries in your practice from Judith Hanson Lasater, a yoga instructor, physical therapist, and bodywork expert. "Tuck your tailbone to protect your back." "Increase your breath." "Pull your abdominal muscles into your backbone." Following these movement cues is often believed to benefit your yoga practice and protect your body when entering and holding poses. However, what may seem like a helpful correction can actually lead to injury or physical harm. In Yoga Myths, Judith Hanson Lasater draws on almost fifty years of experience as a yoga instructor and physical therapist to address the most common mistakes in our yoga practice and provide clear instructions for correcting these errors. Focusing on the eleven "myths" most detrimental to our practice, Lasater provides a comprehensive discussion of what the myth is, why it can hurt us, and how we can avoid it through step-by-step instructions and guiding photos. This book will allow you to return to the inherent wisdom, natural goodness, and spiritual wholeness of yoga and avoid life altering injuries for as long as you practice.

ABOUT THE BOOK In many ways, yoga saved my life. Most yoga practitioners can probably relate to that statement. Through yoga, self-transformation occurs throughout your lifetime in multiple spheres - body, mind, and spirit - to ultimately and continually bring you more in tune with yourself. I realized fairly early on in my yoga-life that I wanted less time in my cubicle at work, and more time on my mat. Back then, I wasn't really sure how I would make that a reality. Now, about a decade later, I teach internationally, I represent Nike as their one and only Global Yoga Ambassador, I'm sponsored by various brands that I really believe in, and I'm blessed with the opportunity to share my journey with you here. I wholeheartedly believe that you can make anything happen for yourself. I believe that you can - and must - seek to discover and live your passion. My yoga practice initiated and established this pathway for me, and I hope my story and my thoughts will inspire you to find the same for yourself. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Leah Kim graduated from UCLA with a degree in Economics, but it wasn't long before she realized her life would be much better spent on the mat than in a cubicle. With the guidance of her first mentor Ally Hamilton, she has devoted her life to yoga, and has had the privilege of regularly practicing with many internationally recognized teachers while living for nearly a decade in the modern-day yoga mecca of Santa Monica. Since the spring of 2009, Leah has been Nike’s Global Yoga Ambassador. She travels on behalf of Nike’s yoga program as their spokesperson and head trainer. She leads Nike Training Club Yoga events, designs yoga programs for Nike, and is featured in Nike media publications. She is currently based in London. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK In Santa Monica-Los Angeles, they say that now there are as many aspiring yoga teachers as there are aspiring actors. I'm not sure how accurate that statement is, but in recent years, there's certainly been an influx of new yoga teachers not just in Southern California, but globally. This makes it a pretty competitive marketplace, and the question then is, how can you make yourself stand out? The yoga career path is a unique one, different from becoming a teacher at a school or a trainer at a gym. Unlike those career paths, there are fewer definitive credentials and mandatory guidelines for becoming a yoga teacher. It's more like being a professional artist. Sure, you need basic technical training, but what will separate you from others is your personal interpretation, perspective, expression, and communication. The technical information must be balanced by your inspired and impassioned creativity and authentic voice. I think that's what will separate the yoga teacher who just teaches classes from the yoga teacher who creates an abundant yoga career. The first official step to turning your yoga practice into your professional career is to attend a Teacher Training, which is where you will receive a Teacher Training Certificate. But before your first Teacher Training (and you'll more than likely do several throughout your yogi-lifetime), I think it's pretty important to have a good grasp on your practice. What that means to you will be very personal, but I can tell you that my teacher Ally taught me that it doesn't mean you have to be able to stick your ankle behind your head, balance on one hand, or levitate. This was something I had a hard time wrapping my head around at first. I think it was a combination of self-doubt, setting impossible expectations, and fear. Like what you're reading? Buy this book!

Through Teaching Yoga for Life: Preparing Children and Teens for Healthy, Balanced Living, you can - help kids become more confident and self-directed, - use a holistic approach to enrich students' lives, and - guide kids to manage stress more effectively. Yoga is gaining popularity in schools and community programs for good reason: It provides an antidote to our fast-paced, technology-based society in which we never stop to relax, dig deeper, and learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Through Teaching Yoga for Life: Preparing Children and Teens for Healthy, Balanced Living, you can employ a simple, safe, and pragmatic method for yoga instruction even if you've never taught it before. The clear, step-by-step directions and ample illustrations make it easy for you to present each of the activities, lessons, and 52 poses included in the book. These lessons are based on a holistic approach that focuses on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of yoga. The book introduces basic yoga philosophy in simplified take-home messages that help students live better lives. It also explains how yoga can enrich students' health and why it should be a vital part of their lives. Yoga students commonly - improve their self-awareness and emotional intelligence; - enhance their abilities to focus and concentrate; - develop greater cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility; and - learn how to handle stress (particularly helpful for kids with learning, behavioral, or social and economic challenges). This visual and user-friendly book is based on applied research and evidence from piloted programs, and it applies the pedagogical standards of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education. The book supplies lessons and unit plans, and you'll learn all about the basic physical poses, breathing techniques, play, visualizations, and relaxation methods. You'll also discover how to teach yoga effectively and learn the science and movement principles behind yoga. Teaching yoga can help you create a safe and relaxed atmosphere for students. You can use a multiple-intelligence approach to engage all of your students, particularly those who don't enjoy traditional sport-based activities. Yoga requires little or no equipment and can be adapted to anyone's needs. It helps people slow down and discover, or rediscover, who they are. Best of all, anyone can do it. With the expert guidance and practical approach of this text, yoga can revitalize your classroom and your students.
