Giving a talk today at Nanzan Uni's Anthropology Insitute - it's the first talk I'm really giving about the project. At the 1/2 way point of the project, it seems like a good time to say something. Hopefully, you can tune in via the yogascapes FB page. I don't have @tattooedyogini_ here today to run the social media stuff. :-( Japan standard time is GMT+9

While I was travelling from Kyoto, I noticed a couple of posters and yoga businesses. A 24hr gym that has 'hotto yoga' and, what I gather to be a pyramid scheme cult, 'brain yoga'. Yoga seems to have reached a very quotidian space in the public imagination. There are many yog studios and posters are found on train platforms, as well as the tunnels connecting lines.
