CORPOREALITY AND COLONIALITY: TENSIONS ABOUT THE YOGA'S CLASSES

Adolfo Ramos Lamar, Eduardo Francisco Freyre Roach

Abstract


The coloniality brings stigmatization, exclusion, persecution and extermination of non-Western knowledge, values, and technologies. But such attitude is being subsumed in the des-tradicionalization, secularization and re-accommodation of such knowledge, in the case of yoga, for example, to the paraphernalia of the free market, corporations and globalization. In correspondence, it promotes representations of body, mind, corporal practices and subjectivity, which are inviting to individualism and conservation of the neoliberal governance. This circunstance sparks tensions and the imperative of decolonization of yoga.
