This is the first book to examine the body in training in the context of religion, sport and wider physical culture, offering important insight into the performative, social, cultural and
gendered aspects of somatic discipline and exercise. The book presents a series of fascinating thematic and case-study led chapters from around the world. It is fascinating reading for any advanced student or researcher with an interest in the body, physical cultural studies, the ethics and philosophy of sport, the sociology of sport, religious studies, Asian studies, or philosophy.
