FOCUS GROUP: Yoga or Bhoga?
Do you care if the yoga class you are in is bhoga (self-seeking worldly pleasure)?
New trends within yoga have shown that when teachers disregard yoga’s original aims (achieving inner perfection and peace) practices becomes liable to hybridisation and legal disputes. For example, in 2013, Bikram Choudhury (founder of Bikram Yoga), initiated a number lawsuits claiming intellectual property infringements on his yoga sequences and seeking legal recourse against competing yoga studios and teachers.
If the original aims of yoga, to seek inner perfection and peace, are being overlooked what aspects of our human experience are being perfected in the postmodern context? Or, are some forms of contemporary yoga actually bhoga in disguise?
This focus group will discuss the balances between yoga and bhoga. Cost: Free
Saturday 29th 5.30pm:
Do you want to catch up with some of the interesting people who frequent Sadhana Yoga, or reconnect with our vibrant yoga community after being away or busy, or even come and say goodbye to Ali and the India group before they head off on a yoga adventure? If so, stop in for tea and a chat, or bring a bottle of your favour beverage and toast the holiday period.
We would love to see you at any one of these events!
