Indra Devi with Krishnamacharya

Found this on YouTube....I love this video of Indra Devi, and how she moves up to hear what was written for her more clearly

Indra who?

*Indra Devi was known as the "first lady" of yoga. She was the first western woman ever to study in an Indian ashram (and one of the first women, period). In the 1930s she became a student of Krishnamacharya, whose other students included Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois. After a year, Krishnamacharya urged her to teach, and she did so the rest of her life, opening a yoga school in Hollywood, teaching in the Soviet Union, and settling in Argentina, writing books along the way. She lived to 102.*
