Yoga on the Rhine

I’ve been tooling around the Rhineland these days researching an article I’m writing on Yoga and I’ve uncovered a world I didn’t even know existed. Airy saffron and purple rooms with scented flower petals carefully dropped in sacred piles on polished bamboo floors, and bright young people dedicated to spreading the good work of yoga in their communities. I’m having a great time and it’s giving me an entirely new perspective on Germany and Germans. More anon … Om Shanti!

Yoga is on my list of things I'd like to do.
My son's school even has yoga for kids once a week!

If there is something I have learned over the years is that, no matter where you live, you always have layers and layers of sub-societal groups living the live they wish to live, regardless of what society considers de rigueur or a la mode.

Yoga is indeed a great thing!... to be honest the spiritual aspect of it is a bit too much for me but even for that I found a solution.. VIKRAM!
