Dutch yoga and mindfulness teacher Karin joins me to discuss how smoking got her into yoga, Tibetan Buddhism, cultural adaptation, kindness, EYP, making yoga useful, how it’s not all about bliss or even relaxation, “karma yoga”, generosity, how Buddhism is a “refugee religion”, Dutch culture, Bhutan (where she does various charitable work), Indian nationalism and yoga and concentration vs open awareness. She also gives some practical mindfulness and meditation tips for practice and establishing a practice. A relaxed amiable stroll of a conversation between friends and colleagues.
