Kevin Courtney - The Real Purpose of Yoga

If you're interested in the connection between yoga and consciousness expansion, you're in for a treat. You don't usually get to hear people who have Kevin Courtney's depth of understanding about the mystical tenants of yoga speak so openly about the true nature of these practices. It's a conversation that's happening more and more over cups of tea, but not often enough on the microphone. Today we're doing our own small bit to remedy that situation.

Kevin is considered one of the most influential yoga teachers in America. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, VICE, Well + Good, among other places. He is a featured teacher on Gaia online, and has been the curator for yoga practice at the Bonnaroo music festival. Kevin's music group, Nada Sadhana, produced one of the most listened to albums in yoga studios across the country.

Kevin is based in Brooklyn, NY. He offers workshops, classes and retreats worldwide and is also a featured teacher on GAIA online.
