Is downward dog really ancient? When did modern day yoga start to take form? In this episode I get into a little bit of the research I’ve been doing around modern postural yoga.
In this episode I discuss:

~Where the standing poses of yoga came from
~The beauty of cultural transmigration
~The women behind what became modern day yoga
~The relationship we’ve ALL been in
Books I used for research:

The Subtle Body by Stefanie Syman
The Science of Yoga by William Broad
The Roots of Yoga by James Mallinson, Mark Singleton
