Inadequacies of Modern Yoga Practice

Subject

Yoga

Description

An analysis of ancient yoga practice. Key historical points are brought forth and discussed and later compared. This is an in depth analysis of the changes of ancient yoga practice with a focus on tantric yoga. The evolution of yoga is brifly discussed and its most prominent contributors and their most notable contributions are touched upon. Modern yoga practice is discussed and is compared to the ancient practices and techniques.
Problems and issues with modern western yoga are noted and brief comparisons and contrasts are drafted between these practices and the ancient ones. This analysis is completed with credible sources from renowned scholars of ancient yoga. The sources and overall essay all agree with a key point: modern yoga is very different than the ancient yoga it attempts to imitate.
Modern yoga has evolved so drastically due to geographic, political, and social reasons and has turned into a practice that holds a minor resemblance to the ancient practice. Many core values have replaced.
With great hope, with the dedication of ancient yoga scholars, proper practice information can be collected (as it already has) and be distributed and shared with the yogis of the next generation with the hopes of the practice returning and having more similarities to its now near forgotten origins.
