DT 018: Back to the Roots with Ida Jo and Scott Lamps

Ida Jo and Scott Lamps are Yoga Acharyas (Masters of Yoga). They are perpetual students of the traditions, methods, and science of yoga and travel internationally to teach. They work closely with Ghosh’s Yoga College in Kolkata, India and have published three Practice Manuals describing more than 100 beginning, intermediate, and advanced asanas, pranayamas and pratyahara techniques, plus an in-depth volume about modifying the 26 postures known as Bikram Yoga. Their research, along with Jerome Armstrong, into the history of the Ghosh lineage has yielded 4 publications from Bishnu Ghosh, Dr. Gouri Shankar Mukerji and Buddha Bose.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Ida and Scott on:

  • How a traditional understanding of dharma contradicts the American dream, and how we can reconcile the two and live a yogic life in modern day
  • Stumbling into the historiography of yoga by accident and their journey to Calcutta, which paved the way for exploration and connection that neither of them had planned or expected
  • What an individualized, prescribed approach to yoga looks like, and how teachers can apply it to group classes in the US
