Welcome to Episode 17 of Let’s Talk Yoga!
As I was looking for someone to help weave the journey of yoga in North America, I stumbled upon Colin Hall’s show called the Yoga History Podcast. I began to listen to his episodes and I was surprised that I didn’t get bored or skip episodes. If you want to get a glimpse of the history of yoga in North America, you have to give this episode a listen. Colin packs so much information for us today. Let’s all laugh and learn with Colin Hall.
Colin Hall likes to call himself a shameless idealist when it comes to yoga. He dropped journalism to start doing religious full time. He has been teaching yoga, giving workshops, and teacher training on asana and yoga philosophy for over a decade. He is also the co-director of Bodhi Tree Yoga where he conducts regular classes and a lecturer on Religious Studies and Kinesiology at the University of Regina as well.

Colin Hall is co-director of Bodhi Tree Yoga, host of the Yoga History Podcast, and a lecturer at the University of Regina. Colin started practicing in 1999 and after completely immersing himself in the practice he was accepted into the Yoga Studio of Calgary’s teacher training program in 2001 where he was fortunate to find one of his most influential teachers David McAmmond. With a background in Religious Studies, Colin found the historical and philosophical aspects of yoga fascinating and slowly began to integrate the many facets of yoga. Today he is a featured teacher for Yoga International and spends most of his time with his family on the Canadian prairies.
