Interview with “The Subtle Body” Author Stefanie Syman
I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing Stefanie Syman. Stefanie is the author of the much anticipated and enthusiastically received history of American Yoga, going back to mid-1800s, The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America.
I got a copy as soon as it came out, and it reads like a thriller. It’s a must for any serious Yoga enthusiast. But it’s so entertaining it clearly has an audience outside the Yoga world, too, as evidenced by this New York Times review, which featured a picture of Marilyn Monroe doing Yoga (which, of course, inspired Waylon Lewis to go out and find the complete set of Marilyn yoga pictures). Stefanie was also recently interviewed on the popular YogaDork blog.
