Michael C Patterson, Keric Moranaga

Have you ever wondered what yoga was all about? Have you asked whether there is more to yoga than just putting your body into weird shapes? If you have been curious about yoga or want to deepen your understanding of what the practice is all about, you will want to listen to this conversation with master yoga teacher Keric Morinaga.   

I study with Keric and, as I imagine happens with most yoga students, I listen to the instructions and do my best to intuit the philosophy and the guiding principles of what we are doing.  Every now and then, tentatively, I might ask a question about the purpose of a particular pose or ask for clarification of a particular instruction. Well, recently Keric was gracious enough to take an hour to patiently answer all of my most pressing questions about the yoga practice.

This episode focuses on Keric’s description of Anusara yoga, which is the discipline he teaches. We also ventured a bit into the realm of the esoteric. I’m always a bit flummoxed when people talk about spirit and spirituality. I know vaguely what people are talking about, but I sense it has different meanings for each person. I wanted to know what Keric meant by “spirituality.” His answer surprised me.
