"Authentic yoga is about having the personal means to actually participate in the reality of life in body, breath and relationship. These means are easily learned and applied without any struggle." - Mark Whitwell
Mark Whitwell has worked as one of the OG yoga teachers around the world for the last 45 years and is the author of four books on the topic of yoga.
I am so grateful to have caught Mark on a brief layover in Singapore, where our conversation really became a healing vessel for me during a particularly difficult time. He reminds me that I am the cosmos, and that I am ultimately enough. His authentic approach to yoga stems from his teachings under the "Father of Yoga" T. Krishnamacharya, and his son TKV Desikachar, of which he helped write a book called The Heart of Yoga.
I was going through a big change during the recording of this episode and became quite emotional in some parts. I am grateful for Mark for offering a safe container to hold my vulnerability.
Mark’s teachings clarify the profound passion and relevance of ancient wisdom to contemporary life. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
