List 2 or 3 interview questions) 1. Why do you study yoga? 2. How does it benefit your life? 3. Is there a spiritual aspect, or is it primarily a physical exercise? 4. If there is a spiritual aspect, can you explain what it is? 5. What do you feel that you have learned from practicing yoga? ImPortance (Why is this topic important to you? To all of us?): Yoga has become a popular form of spiritual and physical exercise in the U.S. in the past several years, with many studios springing up in the local area. The practice and motivations for it may be quite different from those in its original context of India, where it has traditionally been undertaken only by those on a particularly rigorous spiritual path. My project will shed some light on these differences.
