"Yoga International emailed questions to three top Ashtanga Yoga teachers—David Swenson, Richard Freeman, and Tim Miller. In this Q&A, David Swenson comments, often poetically, on K. Pattabhi Jois and his legacy, on the “unseen” aspects of yoga practice, and on the connection of the practices to Patanjali’s ashtanga yoga (8 limbs of yoga) in the Yoga Sutra. He also talks about the importance of bringing yoga off the mat and into the world, and about transforming the sense of loss left by Pattabhi Jois’s passing."
"In this Q&A, Richard Freeman comments perceptively on some of the mental and psychological aspects of Ashtanga practice—how students tend to avoid certain practices or issues, how working with the breath gives insight into the mind, and the importance of practicing with mindfulness."
"In this Q&A, Tim Miller gives us his clear, firsthand view of Pattabhi Jois’s philosophy, practices, and teaching style, and the connection of the practices to Patanjali’s ashtanga yoga (8 limbs of yoga) in the Yoga Sutra. He also comments on how yoga has changed in the modern world and how it must support the other parts of our life."
