Phil Goldberg, yoga practitioner, teacher, and writer, has studied India's spiritual traditions for more than 45 years. His most recent book is American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation, How Indian Spirituality Changed the West.
In this bonus interview, Phil provides a perspective on the evolution of yoga in the West. How did yoga pioneers like Emerson, Thoreau, the Beatles, and the first teachers who came to the West shape today's yoga landscape? What made yoga mainstream? How are Westerners ironically influencing yoga in the East?
Learn how yoga has evolved--from philosophy, to meditation, and now exercise, or asana. Hear how we've been influenced by teachers we don't even realize; how we are revolutionizing this ancient practice and adapting it to our modern needs!
"The job of the yoga community is to make the fullness of yoga available to people."
