In this interview, Glenn and Kathryn talk about yoga and injuries in detail. Glenn has a unique perspective, after 50 years of practice and teaching he has seen a lot of ups and downs in the yoga community. He comments on how many people are surprised when they become injured practicing yoga as if the mystical side would protect against repetitive strain or a lack of preparation. He speaks about how he consulted with William Broad for the book The Science of Yoga, The Risks and Rewards and how many people were unhappy when he began to speak his truth. Glenn also speaks very humble about how he doesn't really know how to teach teachers and the complexities of bringing up yoga teachers in this new age. Over the course of the interview, he came back to the idea that yoga is not just asana, and how our materialistic culture has glorified the physical practice.
