Meeting young and modern Indians in Canada taught me a whole new different perspective on yoga. This practice afterall originated in ancient India and it’s really interesting to talk “yoga” to them and at the same time listen to their opinions and yoga life stories. One of the people I met is Reena and she is from the beautiful northern Indian state of Rajasthan. I have come to learn from her that in their city, Yoga is being taught to children at an early age either at home or in school. It is part of their curriculum and culture – a normal everyday kind of activity for them.
