Yoga Lineages is a series of conversations that explores seven of today’s most widely recognized yoga lineages, revealing what is unique about these practices. Whether you’re seeking peace of mind, strength in body, or are simply interested in finding a more mindful way of living, yoga can help and is a practice for all.
