New Zealand Yoga Study – free talk

Ali Hale Tilley will present findings from her Master’s Study on Yoga in New Zealand

Labour Day, Monday 24th October @ 5-5.45pm/ Sadhana Yoga: 9 Park Road, Miramar

This ethnographic study looks at the Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ) Yoga Industry, examining the ways that spirituality and consumerism influence Modern Yoga practices. This study argues that New Zealanders choose yoga practices for different spiritual, physical, and psychological reasons, reflecting the diverse sociocultural values and consumer expectations of local people. The wide-ranging spectrum of yoga practiced at a local level reflects the pragmatic needs, consumer expectations, and imagined ideals of resident populations.

Ali’s powerpoint presentation will last 20 minutes, followed by a question and answer session. Everyone is welcome to come and listen, or ask questions at the end of the talk.
