What is Yoga Really? with Robert Moses
Early yogis concentrated on achieving homeostasis using the nervous and endocrine systems with simple breathing exercises, meditation and compassion for optimum well being. We will discuss some of these techniques and how recent discoveries in modern science validate their methods.
A direct disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda, the founder of the Sivananda Yoga tradition, Robert Sankara Moses has 45 years experience as a teacher of Yoga and Vedanta. Born in South Africa, Robert studied architecture, travelled abroad and met his guru, Sri Swami Vishnudevananda, in 1972. Robert spent the next 22 years with Swamiji, studying and serving in the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres (ISYVC). He directed ISYVC centres and ashrams and taught yoga teacher training and advanced training courses worldwide, including at the ISYVC ashram in Neyyar Dam, Kerala (from 1982 to 1994). In the early 1990s, Swamiji appointed Robert as one of seven original members of the newly formed executive board of ISYVC.
After Swami Vishnudevananda left his body in 1994, Robert left ISYVC to marry Meenakshi and raise a family. Robert continues to teach Yoga and Vedanta, and maintains his daily sadhana based on the teachings of H.H. Sri Swami Sivananda and Sri Swami Vishnudevananda. In 2003 he founded and continues to co-publish Namarupa: Categories of Indian Thought - a magazine about the philosophies and arts of India. Robert leads annual pilgrimages to sacred places of India. www.namarupa.org. He lives in New Hampshire, USA with his wife and three children.
Meenakshi Moses has been practicing yoga since 1985, and received teacher's certification (1988) and advanced teacher's certification (1990) from the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers. Meenakshi lives with her husband and three children and teaches yoga in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire.
