A reader , Donny, got in touch a while back saying he was starting up a website/blog and could he use some of the material from here. I was happy to oblige,and besides I have this blog down as creative commons licence anyway. Donny got in touch again this week to say it was up and running, it contains some excellent material I hadn't come across before.
The site is called Kaohsiung Yoga after the city of the same name in Taiwan where Donny has his studio.
I particularly like the four part post on Theos Bernard, who went to India and Tibet in the 30s and 40s in search of Yoga. His phd thesis was turned into a book and is still my favourite treatment of the Hatha yoga Pradipka in that it's Theos' experience of being taught HYP as a manual, no doubt it's original intention.
|My own edition stumbled upon in a UK charity shop a few years back.|
The above article is by Paul G. Hackett who wrote this biography of Theos Bernard which I still haven't gotten around to buying, although I did spend all afternoon reading part of it in a bookshop in Santa Monica while on Ramaswami's TT coulrse at LMU.
