“THAT’S NOT YOGA.” You’ll hear that phrase a lot these days, particularly in jaded spiritual circles. The assumption is that yoga, as it’s practiced now, has devolved into a narcissistic physical exercise that melds perfectly with our hyper-consumerist economic system and fails to produce any lasting social change. That’s one perspective.
Thankfully, I was able to sit down with some of the most knowledgeable and inspiring yoga teachers from this side of the Ganges, to hear how they perceive this ancient practice and where it is taking us. Venerable voices include: Seane Corn, Janet Stone, Chris Chavez, Eoin Finn, Sjanie Mcinnis and Wanderlust co-founder Schulyer Grant.
