    This is one of the best Yoga Interviews I have seen. It's the perfect length and I think she does a marvelous Job of summing up what Yoga is about in a way that everyone can benefit.

  2. Sat Nam, (reverent greetings)

    It's refreshing to hear someone talk about the *inner changes* that yoga brings. Good video.

    I would like to add that there are other paths of yoga that do not stress the physical – such as Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan. If you find these asanas (poses) intimidating check out Kundalini – you will have an effect. Yoga is uniting Mind, Body and Spirit.

    peace to ALL,

    Catalyst Yogi
