Women were ancient Tantric gurus, early adapters of yoga in the 1890s and one of our greatest 20th century teachers was Indra Devi. Before Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois, she brought yoga to the world.
With rare archival images, this lecture tells the story of Devi, her followers and predecessors. We’ll look at gender in society, explore women’s influence on the practice, and meet yoginis and teachers from the Vedas, Upanishads and tantras.
This is a unique event. Come enjoy this rarely-told history.
