Yoga International, a publication of the Himalayan Institute, is folding after 22 years. The non-profit institute will instead share its yoga philosophy teachings via a revamped website.
“I think it’s a really sad day for the yoga community,” said Linda Sparrowe, who has been Yoga International’s editor in chief for the past two years. Sparrowe, who was also an editor for Yoga Journal in the 1990s, said she felt that together YJ and Yoga International had touched the entire demographic of yoga aficionados, both those interested in yoga lifestyle and culture and those who are more interested in the philosophy of the practice. “There’s really nothing to replace it,” she added.
Some of the columns from the magazine, including the Yoga Sutras by Himalayan Institute spiritual leader Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, will continue online, along with new e-courses, columns and news. Read more here.
