Keen On Yoga Podcast

The Keen on Yoga Podcast was created with the wish to broaden the topic of yoga in conversation with people who have lived yoga as a lifestyle for many years.

Find out what yoga means to them and us as we take yoga off the mat to consider afresh what it means for living in the modern world. See the full full list of guests here.
