death by yoga?
I'm quite interested in the way yoga is mapped onto to other leisure activities like walking pilgrimage routes and relaxing at onsens. These domains will form part of the ethnographic component.
I came across this representation of yoga while looking for information about 'yoga and onsens'.
This is from a computer game called Hitman. Part of the culture around this game is recording and posting your hits. This one is set in an onsen in Hokkaido. The hitman has to find the yoga clothes somewhere in the building and then find the target, pretend to be their yoga teacher, and with only a yoga mat, make the kill...
It's an interesting way in which yoga is woven into so many worlds all at once.
