With Debbie Gilman
Sundays, September 24 & December 3 | 2:30–4pm
The Yoga Room Book Group meets every other month to explore the history of yoga and our place in it.
Our next book is The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America by Stefanie Syman which tells the stories of many of yoga’s greatest advocates, including Henry David Thoreau, Pierre A. Bernard, Margaret Woodrow Wilson, Christopher Isherwood, Sally Kempton, and Indra Devi. From New England, the narrative moves to New York City and its suburbs between the wars, to colonial India, to postwar Los Angeles, to Haight-Ashbury in its heyday, and back to New York City post-9/11.
This meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Debbie Gilman: firstname.lastname@example.org
