The Full Discussion

Join us for a thrilling three part conversation with author, scholar and yogi, Douglas Brooks, who is currently Professor of Religion at the University of Rochester, NY. His work with yoga communities has impacted countless numbers of yogis and yoginis all over the world, and particularly here in the United States.

In Part I, we begin our conversation about what it means to be a western yogi in the world today.  What are we missing, given the context of yoga’s origins? What opportunities do we have for greater integration and understanding? Are there other streams of ideas within yoga that we typically don’t know of in the west? In addition to exploring these ideas and more; Douglas shares some of hist first experiences with his teacher in India and how it set the stage for his life now.
