In the modern and popular world of yoga, there is widespread misinformation about the tradition and the path of Hatha Yoga. Its rich history is often forgotten or laid aside and replaced with various misleading interpretations. As a yoga teacher, do you know what is hatha yoga? Because every modern yoga teacher is borrowing from this tradition in some form. But hardly anyone acknowledges this or knows the rich history of hatha yoga.
I am delighted to have Prasad Rangnekar back as our guest in this episode to talk all about Hatha Yoga. Prasad has been associated with the Natha Lineage, the founding lineage of Hatha Yoga for over 16 years. He has lived & studied with masters from the Natha lineage for many years. Making him a very credible guest for this topic.
Prasad is here to help us demystify some of the common mysticisms associated with Hatha Yoga. If you teach yoga in some capacity, this episode is a must-listen in any yoga teacher's educational journey.
