Episode 9 - WTF Are the Schools of Yoga?

What is your class title telling you? In this episode, we explain what the schools of yoga are and discuss some of the most popular.

Show Notes:

Read Kino MacGregor's response to the accusations against Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. 

Check out David Life and Sharon Gannon's book Jivamukti Yoga (holy crap, the foreword is written by Sting).

Gabriel Halpern is a Chicago-area Iyengar trained teacher. We highly recommend taking a class or workshop with him!

Check out Bernie Clark’s online classes and his book The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga. This book is super green. 

Enjoy this nine-minute meditation that incorporates three-part breathing.
