Professor Sarah Hillewaert: Yoga as Development for Africa?

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 from 7:00-8:15pm

Via virtual library - webex: Register at | Registration code 883695

Professor Hillewaert studies the introduction of yoga and mindfulness as new forms of development in Eastern Africa. She explores why North American yoga practitioners travel to countries like Kenya to teach yoga and mindfulness and considers how local communities
respond to these new ideas. What negotiating is required for “yoga as development” projects to be successful? And what does this trend tell us about the changing stakes of humanitarianism today?
