An Unusual Gathering

From May 4th to May 6th, the Brooklyn Yoga Club is presenting a very special event. Four experts are doing a workshop that spans four of the main Indian spiritual traditions: Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotisha and Vedanta.

The presenters, who jokingly say they’re not a law firm, are Svoboda, Stern, Moses and Mahan. Dr. Robert Svoboda was the first Westerner to graduate from a college of Ayurveda, has been practicing since 1980, and is one of the world’s leading teachers. Eddie Stern, is perhaps New York’s most well-known Ashtangi, Robert Moses is a long time yoga teacher, an expert on Advaita Vedanta and the co-publisher of Namarupa, Categories of Indian Thought. Marga Mahan, is recognized as one of the world’s leading Jyotisha practitioners, having studied and taught for 25 years.

Lisa Dawn Angerame talked with Mahan and Moses to find out how this came about and what we can expect from this very educated group.
