In this Drishti Point Yoga Radio broadcast (Co-op radio out of Vancouver), Anne Parsonage, founder of Yoga from the Heart Canada in Toronto, describes the practical aspects of this new approach to yoga which is based on the teachings of spiritual guide Heinz Grill of Germany (with whom Anne did her formal yoga teacher training in Germany in 1993). Grill’s teachings are based in devotion to God (bhakti yoga), and reflect a deep understanding of the integral nature of earthly life and spiritual life, and are specifically developed for a modern-day Western consciousness. The interview topics reveal how this yoga differs from other types of yoga, and include ordering of the soul powers (of thinking, feeling, and willing), free-flow breathing, and inspired pictorial spiritual “imaginations” relating to the classical poses of yoga.
