Yoga and America Part 2: The Arrival

with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

Class Description

Yoga came to America in waves, starting over 100 years ago. Panditji mentions a number of masters who brought their knowledge of yoga philosophy and practice here. He describes how yoga grew organically, with its different limbs or aspects integrated, until the late 1970’s, when a new trend started that included brand-name yoga and an almost exclusive emphasis on asana. He commends American yogis for the huge jump in the number of yoga practitioners and for refining asana to a high degree.
