Globally-recognised yoga teacher Kino MacGregor shares the inspiring tale of her evolution from late-night raver to fully-devoted yoga practitioner, teacher and entrepreneur. Her first goal as a new yoga teacher was a grand one: share yoga with one million people. Two decades later, and she’s done just that, inspiring 1.1 million followers on Instagram and students in studios around the world.
In this episode of triyoga talks, Kino shows her vulnerable side as she opens up about her healing from the trauma of rape. She shares her views on the role of money in yoga, and the future of ashtanga yoga. She even talks about babies, and whether or not she’s planning on running for political office.
When discussing making ashtanga accessible, she spoke about the need to shift attention towards yoga’s essence:
“I can only hope that all yoga practitioners can understand that the magic and the power of the practice is not based in rules, rigidity and dogma, but is based in a power to transport the individual into health in the body, clarity and peace in the mind, and openness and love in the heart. Whatever means we can use to communicate that and create that opening, well to me, that’s yoga.”
Whichever way you look at it, Kino’s impact on modern yoga is big, and her passion for the practice and reverence for the divine is contagious.
We hope you enjoy this dive into the deeper side of Kino MacGregor.
