This Wed. Sept. 7th my guest is Beryl Bender Birch, best selling author of Power Yoga, one of the most successful yoga books available, and of Beyond Power Yoga, the poetic and philosophical exploration of the 8-limbed astanga yoga method. She was named one of seven American women “innovators shaping yoga today” by Yoga Journal in 2000 and was featured in the 2003 Barnes and Noble book, American Yoga. In the late 80's, Beryl coined the term "power yoga"(along with Bryan Kest on the West Coast) as a way for "western mind" to relate to the then obscure ancient practice of astanga yoga. The name came to her in a dream and she saw it as the perfect way to let people know that the astanga practice was a WORKOUT for the body, unlike much of the yoga being taught at that time in the United States, as well as the mind.

Join me for an informative, entertaining (Beryl has a fabulous sense of humor) and inspirational conversation!
