Seth Powell is a longtime practitioner of yoga and a scholar of Indian religions, Sanskrit, and yoga traditions. He is currently a PhD Candidate in South Asian Religions at Harvard University. In this conversation we discuss Seth’s journey into meditation and yoga, his travels in India to his entry into academia, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita, the purpose and goal of yoga, yogic philosophy as it relates to consciousness and mind, the evolution of yoga throughout history, and his online classroom, yogicstudies.com, for yogis wishing to deepen their understanding of yoga history and literature.
