Stunning historic precedents for women’s involvement in yoga can be seen in this preview of Yoga: The Art of Transformation. Most early Indian sculptures and paintings represent male yogis, but here you will see rare tenth-century stone yogini goddesses and a painting of a seventeenth-century female guru and her dreadlocked young disciple. And you will meet Koringa! Find out if she was the "only female yogi" or (spoiler alert!) a death-defying magicienne who fascinated audiences in France, England and the U.S. in the 1930s.
