The Yoga Superstar of 1893: Swami Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda—Sure, you’ve heard of this guy, but who the heck was he? When did he live? What did he look like? And why does his name keep hanging around?
Before Gandhi, ML King and Mother Theresa, Vivekananda was the first pop-culture saint. He was the first to make yoga desirable and cool.
Hopping a boat to Canada in 1893, he taught yoga throughout the West before dying young and leaving sweet echoes in history.
In this lecture, listen to his stories and see archival images of Vivekananda’s brash, cigar-smoking effort to pull yoga from the shadows into the modern world.
