This video interview is with Duncan Peak, founder of Power Living Australia Yoga, and author of Modern Yoga. Duncan will be crossing the ditch shortly to teach at the upcoming NZ Wanderlust Festival (March 23rd, 2014).
Tune into to hear Kara-Leah Grant talk with Duncan about:
* Starting yoga at the age of 15 and practicing yoga in the military
"There weren't many men back into it in those days, and not very many young boys doing it... I didn't mention it so much at rugby training or things like that."
* What is Modern Yoga?
"Makes it accessible to people... not dressed up in so much mystique and tradition that can scare a lot of people off... it's a step in keeping yoga alive."
* Yoga and business: yoga as 'product' and using yoga techniques to run a business
"People say 'never go into business with your friends' and for me I'm in business with all of my best friends... for me that's more of a yoga practice than going in and doing a few handstands and downward dogs. It's that constant honesty and love and understanding of how our community... needs to work for us to serve at such a big level."
* Duncan's classes and talks at Wanderlust
"I'll be teaching in a way that makes it safe enough for a beginner to come along, but also challenging enough for an advanced practitioner."
