Collapse Yoga mixes Yoga with possible "negative" states as sadness, illness, anxiety, hopelessness, worry, renouncement, exhaustion, grief, boredom, decrepitude, pain, failure, fear and their traces in the body. It collides Yoga's aims for coordination, balance, strength, straightness, flexibility, alignment, control with the body's deep desires for asymmetry, incoordination, weakness, relaxation, freedom, unbalance, abandon, collapse. It affects the normativity of the human form. Collapse Yoga is sometimes practiced next to intimidating buildings, monuments, in charged public spaces associated with cultural stiffness, harmful ethics or bad politics. It can tune our bodies with natural, cultural and personal collapsing environments, affecting maybe some of them. The relation with our own bodies tends to extend to the entire reality – there is a correspondence and influence between the body's politics and society's problems.
