Radical Acts of Embodiment by Dages Juvelier Keates

Radical Acts of Embodiment by Dages Juvelier Keates


Radical Acts of Embodiment is a manual and manifesto. As a primer for practitioners of yoga, it contains practical information on techniques of Katonah Yoga, a syncretic Hatha yoga practice developed by Nevine Michaan, incorporating Taoist theory, geometry, metaphor, and imagination.

But this book is also an attempt to bridge a perceived gap between personal practices and political action. This book posits that the personal is political and the political is practical. Our bodies are not abstract, nor are they delusional. They are not broken down mechanisms to be fixed nor problems to be resolved. Our bodies are our material, and we are in a moment of an explosion of opportunity for intelligent yogic practices to proffer other guidance: to suture the wound, to bind the riven, to braid the binaries, to turn us towards deeply sensate, sensual, and sensible embodiment.
