 Speaker: Ms. Sneha Rao
In this webinar, Sneha Rao will unpack key narratives made by Western Academia that place Yoga's origin outside Hinduism. We will focus on the work of James Mallinson and Mark Singleton as they popularized the narrative that Yoga originated outside Hinduism. We will examine the assumptions, methods, and means by which these narratives are upheld, and the incentives in place within the Yoga Industry.
