Modern Yoga: How We Got to Where We Are

by Douglas Keller

The story of Modern Yoga and how it was shaped in both East and West via dialogue between these two worlds has long been overlooked, leading to much confusion about the form(s) it has taken. This talk explores how our conceptions of yoga have been formed.

Album Notes
Doug Keller’s background reflects a lifelong commitment to the vast field of yoga.

After receiving degrees in philosophy from Georgetown and Fordham University and teaching philosophy at a college level, he pursued a practical experience of yoga at the ashram Gurudev Siddha Peeth in India — which in turn also led him to the practice of hatha yoga as part of his overall experience of yoga.

From years of study, practice and teaching, he has produced widely used and highly respected books on asana, yoga as therapy, pranayama and yoga philosophy, and he teaches hatha yoga workshops and trainings in both North America and Europe.

In this talk Doug puts his studies to good use to help us understand the development of our modern conception of yoga philosophy, particularly as centered around Patanjali.
