#10 - Keen on Yoga Podcast with David Swenson

Keen on Yoga Podcast

David is a legend within Ashtanga yoga.  Probably the inventor of the ‘yoga in nature’ photo with his seminal book Ashtanga Yoga Practice Manual’, he has been a shining light of inspiration spreading Ashtanga yoga across the globe for the last 30 years or so. He is well known for his formidable ability in practise, but equally so for the way he makes the complex and demanding practise of Ashtanga yoga appear possible, even fun. Speaking as one of the earliest students to arrive in Mysore, he is remarkably non-dogmatic about the tradition he learnt so early on. He refers to himself instead as an ‘asana waiter’ bringing students the help they need in the postures as opposed to following rigidly to rules.

“Carrying On” with David Swenson

Talking Yoga

Join us as Beryl Bender Birch sits down with David Swenson to share the insights he’s gained over 40 years practicing and teaching yoga. David discusses hitting plateaus in our practice, where we think that nothing is changing and we lose sight of how good we feel. He explains how for him, “Carrying on is a tool” for doing yoga, and for the rest of his life.

For David, yoga is not meant to be selfish: “Feel good, but then go and make the world a better place any way you can by sharing the positive energy.” You’ll get to hear David describe the joy he’s gotten – and the spiritual lessons he’s learned – from teaching yoga to those who are blind. And you’ll learn how he started his journey by reading yoga books with his brother Doug Swenson in Texas – and how they were nearly arrested in a Houston park for practicing what unenlightened neighbors saw as “Devil Worship.”
