The split into yoga scholars and yoga popularisers
In other words, during this post-war period we witness a break up of the Western modernist yoga culture into two distinct and separate cultural fields – a scholarly field found within academic institutions and a popular field found in the market and formed by the nascent consumer culture.

Until then the Orientalists had been widely read and had interacted intensely with urban cultural elites and middle classes. However the Indologist scholars (Wikipedia link) emerging after WW2 became isolated in the notorious intellectual ivory towers. The academic yoga discourse mainly retreated to departments of religious studies. It was from now on conducted by people primarily trained in Sanskrit and hermeneutics (textual interpretation), by scholars heavily influenced by phenomenological and essentialist philosophy and methodology (see Contemplation on this intellectual yoga discourse ).
