This hybridisation of yogic and romanticist signs and cultures is confirmed by the American teacher of women’s studies K. Lau. In New Age Capitalism (2000). She also finds that the romanticist discourse resonates very well with the social experiences and interests of women. Nature for instance has become a strong romanticist symbol. Hence you will find countless yoga magazines, books and videos imagining yoga as linked to nature, says Lau. It has become a worn cliche in yoga literature and publicity to see images of people practising yoga with a breath-taking natural background. Further in classes, books and magazines yoga is presented as a tool for connecting yogis to social welfare, ancient cultures, nature, the planet and even the whole universe.
