Introducing Gulnaaz Dashti- at the feet of the GuruApr 05, 2021
I was going to write a different email this week but I just have to share with you the interview of Gulnaaz Dashti, my teacher.
If you want to know more about Iyengar yoga from the perspective of someone who has been immersed in it right at the feet of BKS Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar and Prashant Iyengar this is an excellent interview as she sheds a bright light and clears up some misconceptions. And she is so funny!
If you prefer audio search The Mychal Bryan podcast
Here some highlights
Around 30:00- She sheds light on the wrong idea that Iyengar yoga being only about props
Around 50:00 She discusses why Asana is so important on the path of yoga and the differenence between exercise and yoga, intellectual perspiration vs. physical perspiration
Around 1:00:00 She talks about how Zoom teaching. And confirms that the light of yoga can be received via Zoom - not as good in person due to the lack of touch but it's advantageous.
P.S I would love to hear your thoughts!
