Epilogue

Thinking in Āsana - Movement and Philosophy in Viniyoga, Iyengar Yoga, and Ashtanga Yoga - Matylda Ciołkosz

Matylda Ciołkosz [+-]
Jagiellonian University, Kraków
Matylda Ciołkosz is scholar of religions and an Assistant Professor at the Institute for the Study of Religions, Jagiellonian University in Kraków. In her research, she explores how religious concepts and doctrines are formed under the influence of different biological and sociocultural factors. As a longtime yoga practitioner, rock climber, and musician, she is especially interested in the significance of movement practices as one of these factors. In her studies- so far focused mainly on modern yoga- she applies the methodologies of cognitive science and lingustics.

Description

The final section of the book is a summary of its argument. It recapitulates the findings of the third chapter and rephrases them in terms of the enactive approach to life and cognition. It redefines yoga practice as a cognitive activity that gives the practitioner the embodied tools to construe their identity, their position in the world, and their capacity to adapt to this world through continuous transformation.
