What was your first experience with yoga?
The VERY first was 1975. I was practiced at gymnastics, yoga was too slow. I was frustrated. I wanted to move. I was ignorant of what yoga was, what it could do for me.
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
I do my best to practice Yamas & Niyamas, the ethical guidelines laid out in the first two limbs of Patanjali’s eightfold path; the observances and restraints. I read Swami Rama of the Himalayas on meditation and mantra, Swami Veda Bharati, his successor on Lifestyle of a Sadhaka. I organize and attend Sutra Study. I meditate on the Full moon with all people across the globe.
