Gregor interviewed by Modern Yogi

Here is an interview that Anthony Charalampous from Modern Yogi conducted with me back in June. Some of the questions I’m answering are:

Why yoga is more important than ever before and what it can do to save the biosphere?

Why it is important for yogis to aim for more than just health?

What exactly is samadhi?

What you need to know when starting yoga?

Why is it not enough to practice just asana?

When looking for a teacher why shouldn’t you hope to find somebody who fixes all of your problems for devotion in return?

Why yoga going mass market would always have disadvantages?

What is yoga in a nutshell?

About Gregor Maehle

Gregor Maehle began his practice of Raja Yoga in 1978 and added Hatha Yoga a few years later. For almost two decades he yearly travelled to India where he studied with various yogic and tantric masters. Since then he has branched out into research of the anatomical alignment of postures and the higher limbs of Yoga. He obtained his anatomical knowledge through a Health Practitioner degree and has also studied History, Philosophy and Comparative Religion. Gregor lived many years as a recluse, studying Sanskrit, yogic scripture and practising yogic techniques. He has published a series of textbooks on all major aspects of yoga. His mission is to re-integrate ashtanga vinyasa practice into the larger framework of Patanjali’s eight-limbed yoga in the spirit of T. Krishnamacharya. He offers trainings, retreats and workshops worldwide.
