WAMU 88.5 : The Kojo Nnamdi Show

The Visual History Of Yoga

Many Americans who attend yoga classes are vaguely aware that the practice originated in India long ago. A new exhibit at the Smithsonian draws on paintings and sculptures from the 2,000-year history of yoga to reveal the evolution of the practice and the religious and spiritual role it played in societies through the centuries. Kojo explores what visual art tells us about yoga's origins and how it became the practice we know today.
