InDepth Yoga Studies...Weekend 9
I actually bought the book that Indra Devi published in the 1940's called Forever Young, Forever Healthy. She was such an incredible woman that I wanted to read her words. She broke geographic and cultural boundaries gracefully in a time when few women were living adventures of their own. What surprised me is just how close what I've been taught follows what she wrote--and she learned from one of the greats.
We talked about how yoga in the US has become a product more than a discipline. We also got into the variety of schools of thought within yoga. Some of them feel very dissonant to me, yet there are one or two that resonate deeply--which is probably why I so enjoy the practice.
As always it was a weekend of ideas, which fuels me. Now to get back to the daily discipline of the practice.
