Listen to the Podcast
When Chris in Oklahoma asks about the importance of deep study with one teacher, Kino MacGregor reaches into her own experiences studying for many years with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. Kino shares with host Zubin Shroff how her travels to India were interspersed with periods of solitary practice, where she began to understand how deeply we can let the work of yoga integrate in terms of our own spiritual practice. She describes how she sees the yoga path as an individual journey, which is at once very intense and very solitary, and that while a teacher’s role can be to help build the roots of yoga, the roots are ours alone. Finally, Kino shares some of her earliest experiences with Guruji, and the support and sincerity she found that allowed her to grow stronger.
Kino MacGregor explains why yoga always keeps its promise, what she’s learned from Guruji, and how the real power of yoga is the power of yourself.
Kino MacGregor discusses how the different roles played by home practice and study with teachers combine in our own personal yoga journeys.
