De Michelis (director, Dharam Hinduja Institute of Indic Research at the Centre for Advanced Religious and Theological Studies, U. of Cambridge, UK) argues that modern yoga draws from the classical Hindu tradition, “but is essentially rooted in the encounter between tradition and modernity of which the British domination was the first example in history.” In her exploration of the religio-philosophical development of modern yoga, she places it within the tradition of esotericism and argues that mutually supportive Hindu Neo-Vedanta and New Age religions together shaped it.
