Judith Hanson Lasater - “Restorative Yoga Queen”

Judith Hanson Lasater is a seminal figure in the yoga world. She talks with J about the earliest times for independent yoga teachers, her experience with BKS Iyengar, reasons for withdrawal from the Iyengar organization, and the inspiration behind what she teaches now. They discuss the appropriateness and intention with which we practice, the privilege of teaching and holding a sacred circle of safety, understanding psychological projection, and mirroring back the inherent goodness and inner wisdom of the student.
