Anusara yoga’s John Friend on Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis.
John Friend, of Anusara Yoga, may have the most vital, vibrant, close-knit yoga community or kula in the US of A. He always happens to be a sweet, kind, wise, wakeful human being—and a longtime friend and morale-booster of young elephant journal dot com.
This here video interview at the historic Boulder Theater with Anusara yoga‘s John Friend touches on grace vs. effort, the evolution of the tradition and lineage of yoga as it matures and changes in the West, how our yoga practice is about more, and less, than getting a “yoga butt,” how to build a vital community, how green needs to be more than a fad, taking responsibility for our own karma…and how all this talk comes down to waking up and seeing everything as alive—and doing so with good humor.
