Yoga in the Garden

If you dismiss yoga as a yuppie’s thang, festival authors Colin Goh and Yen Yen Woo may change your mind. As owners of Yumcha Yoga, they hold an annual yoga and community event called Yoga in the Garden. Organized with Flushing Town Hall, the popular get-together takes place in the green heart of the civic and cultural center. This year, after the stretching, there will be some kirtan singing – a call-and-response chorus in the Indian bhakti devotional tradition. Ask Colin and Yen Yen about yoga and its relationship to their writing, filmmaking and comic illustration at the Singapore Literature Festival in NYC (Oct 10 – 12, 2014). In the meantime, enjoy the video and peace be with you.
