Karl Smith

Karl Smith started practicing yoga about the time that he dropped out of the rat race and began studying philosophy and sociology. After finishing a PhD in social theory he was able to turn his attention more fully to yoga, both as practice and culture. He now works as a freelance writer and editor and as a life coach. Karl lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his dog and his favorite yoga teacher. You can find his other publications on his website and can contact him there or on Facebook.
