Chapter 1 presents a very brief overview of yoga in the Indian tradition, with particular reference to haṭha yoga, as we know it through medieval texts and modern historical scholarship. What is clear from such a summary is that modern postural orthopraxis does not really resemble the yoga forms from which it claims to derive.
