Kino MacGregor, Ashtanga Dispatch Podcast

Podcast Episode 28: Kino MacGregor

Kino MacGregor is one of the most celebrated Ashtanga yoga teachers in the world with over a million followers now on Instagram. And though it would be easy to chalk up her fame to a winning mixture of beauty, charm, and physical skill – you’d then be missing the REAL reason Kino is who she is and where she is.

As the author of 4 books, including her most recent, The Yogi Assignment, a co-creater of Om Stars, an online channel for yogis, producer of six videos, and one of a select group of teachers certified to teach Ashtanga by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Kino is like a true force of nature.

Of course, this isn’t the first time I’ve interviewed Kino. So I already know how smart, driven, and incredibly disciplined she is.

In fact, Kino is a contributor and on the cover of the Ashtanga Dispatch Magazine II

So I already know how determined and dedicated she is. Though I’ll admit, she can also be somewhat guarded and perhaps with good reason. But not this time. In fact, in today’s episode of the Ashtanga Dispatch yoga podcast, Kino opens up about her personal  struggles, both on the mat and off.

And in a pure candid moment – Kino responds to the critics who say videos are no way to learn Ashtanga.
