Who says Yoga has limits? Or Yoga involves breaking or at least testing your limits? Well, we can be sure of one thing, at least: with the advancement of human race, the application and utility of Yoga will keep evolving from the backyards of remotely-located Ashrams in the Oriental to the ultra-modern studios of the West, and now on the slippery yet beautifully-decked snow peaks.

Coming from India, I know a lot of people who are into Yoga as a physical practice. Right from our childhood, we hear commoners talking about various kinds of yogasanas and practices.

But, of course, when somebody from outside India is practicing Yoga with such zeal and dedication, we are curious … Continue reading “What Yoga means to you: An interview with Raechal Levin”
