This is the kind of question that the cultural criticism of Lasch, Bourdieu, Baudrillard and Foucault invites yoga sympathisers to investigate: we might call it a post-modern yoga discourse with a sociological twist. It directs us to yogic self-reflection based on the acknowledgement that social processes flow into and shape the individual’s self and identity-and that includes (and this is the critical point) a self that is constructed by yoga technologies. Their point is that yoga discourse like a coin has two faces: the one, official, side promises transformation and liberation, the other, hidden, side carries the threat of social control and servitude. It is a post-modern yoga reflecting on the yoga self’ as a social constructed self.
