S2 EP 22 Prasad Rangnekar | How can you embrace & navigate the profound spiritual system of yoga? 

a Curious Yogi

“Patience, finding your teacher, and a community, a community that is led by a higher goal, led by purpose, by empathy, togetherness – will help you.”

In this episode of a Curious Yogi Podcast, I talk to the ever-fresh and brilliant Prasad Rangnekar. Humble and humorous with a way of connecting the listener to the underlying essence of yoga is, with total clarity, Prasad has been teaching and living those teachings of yoga as a scientific system of spirituality for nearly 30 years.

Today, he gives us a broader context to consider when arriving at the practices and study of yoga, as well as the utmost importance of studentship. I ask him how we can practice yoga today while respecting the roots, the origins, and the culture from which it arises. He amazingly expounds all my questions with analogies and inquiries from which we can all learn.

Here’s just a tiny sample of the key knowledge points from todays conversation:

➖04:29 Yoga as the spiritual, cultural capital of India

➖11:24 There needs to be respect for this grand narrative of yoga

➖16:49 Yoga is an ecosystem

➖29:39 Yoga as a longer path of Self-transformation

➖35:55 The confusion of a “yoga teacher” after a 200-hour training

➖43:52 Recognize the volume of ground we have to cover

➖47:22 Finding your teacher is extremely important, not just a teacher

➖49:15 Sangha is a spiritual community of fellow seekers with a deeper resonance

I left this conversation with my heart open for the yoga we so thoroughly discussed. The yoga which can never, and should never, be extracted in part from the whole, magnificent Self that we all aspire to know and reside in.

Whether you’re a student, teacher or simply curious about what yoga really is, there is something here for you.

in oneness,

About Bobbi

I'm Bobbi, a very curious yogi! I’m also into exploring nature all around the world, creating epic vegan feasts, and apart from being on my yoga mat, I’m happiest when I’m disco dancing my way back to the 70’s!

A Curious Yogi 

I’m really excited that you’ve made it here! So, what’s my mission? It’s to support you in uncovering your highest Self and living an expanded everyday life. It’s my mission because I spent 14 years as a lost, addicted, and depressed yogi. And, it wasn’t until I began to put tender, love and care into my daily personal practice, sadhana, that I began to unfold that state of bliss, which is Yog. 

I’m here as your guide, and your friend, to help you integrate hath yog, pranaayam, meditation & yogic wisdom into your daily life so you can blossom too. 

Hello, friends! I'm Bobbi.

And I'm a
