So we see the yoga industry breaking up into a plethora of market niches each giving yoga (the signifier’, the sound) various signification (the signified’, the mental meaning). But we have also seen that it is not just the signified that has changed: also the referent of yoga – the content, the physical reality, the actual practices and their priority, the know-how – are in a perpetual process of change.
