03: The Art of Vinyasa Yoga with Srivatsa Ramaswami
It was my great honour and joy to have a conversation with my teacher Srivatsa Ramaswami, who I studied with back in 2014 during one of his trainings at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Ramaswami has an encyclopedic knowledge of yoga, having spent over 30 years learning from his guru, the great Sri T Krishnamacharya, considered by most to be the grandfather of modern yoga. Ramaswami carries those teachings with a great deal of integrity and humility, which in my books, makes him not only a great teacher, but also a real yogi (although I'm sure he would say otherwise).
