Recensione:

The Yoga Tradition of the Mysore Palace Author: N. E. Sjoman The Yoga Tradition of the Mysore Palace has just come out in its second edition with some minor corrections and a new preface. It is an extraordinary book in the breadth of research that informs it. The book presents strikingly original conclusions on a subject where most insights have been doctored to fulfill the faith in its various forms or keep up with the advertising extravaganza. The book traces not the history but the development of the yoga schools that have flowered with B. K. S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois and T. Krishnamacariar. It goes back further into the history of yoga reclaiming the practise history as the main authority, as opposed to the academic history. Sjoman examines the academic history from the point of view of the "practise history" which requires re-evaluating and reclaiming it from both Sanskrit commentators and Western academics. His interpretation of the sutra of Patanjali from the perspective of yoga practitioners is especially welcome. This approach makes more sense than the academic interpretations. The story elaborated here is supplemented by philosophical and textual arguments by Indian scholars and pandits too often neglected in Western scholastics, and by unique insights into those traditions that could only be given by someone immersed in the tradition. The history of the Mysore Palace School gives us an insight into how the yoga system which is foremost in the whole world today has come into being. The history reveals not just the "material moments" as such, but the ideas that were part of what went into the formation of modern yoga today --By jim clark on April 9, 2000

excellent historical account of yoga asanas. there is currently a debate in progress regarding the origin of yoga asanas / postures. While some feel they are only about 150- 200 yrs old others thing they are ancient. I think the jury is still out on that point. In any case the modern movement seems to have originated at the Mysore Palace. --By Dr. Jessie J. Mercay on November 2, 2013
