Introduction to the History and Philosopy of Yoga with Kate Hallahan

Yoga Style: 
Kate Hallahan Zuckerman in Cobra

This week's feature is a lecture on the History and Philosophy of Yoga with Charlottesville Yoga Teacher, Kate Hallahan. Kate is the Founder of the Guerrilla Yoga Project which offers Donation-Only Yoga Classes to all sectors of the community and Co-Director of the Charlottesville Yoga School. Kate has studied extensively with Kofia Busia, one of the world's foremost Iyengar teachers, as well as other senior teachers in both the Iyengar and Anusara Traditions. Kate is devoted to her daily yoga practice and has a background deeply rooted in the philosophy of yoga.

Kate has provided her diligent research and insight into the History and Philosophy of Hatha Yoga, reminding us of the roots of this great practice. Please note that when Kate mentions the specific number of asanas, kriyas, etc. in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, those numbers actually correspond to another seminal text of hatha yoga, the Gheranda Samhita.

She has also recorded a standing pose workshop called "Standing on Your Own Two Feet". This workshop is available in our download store as part of our Karma Collection with proceeds going towards the Westhaven Clinic in Charlottesville, Virginia. Thank you Kate for all of your offerings.
