Episode 39 — Aadil Palkhivala — A Natural Born Yogi

Yoga Leader, Teacher and visionary, Aadil Palkhivala, joins Jason on this episode of Learning To Fail. Aadil is one of the top yoga teachers in the world, and has become a personal friend of Jason's since their first meeting in San Francisco, in 2009. They have embarked on creative projects together, collaborated on yoga prop designs and implementation, and shared numerous personal stories and sagas. Jason considers Aadil to be one of his most influential yoga teachers and always learns something valuable from his encounters with Aadil. This unparalleled episode of LTF is no exception.

Aadil, and his wife, Savitri, are the co-founders of Purna Yoga and Alive & Shine Yoga Center in Bellevue, Washington.

ABOUT AADIL

WHY AADIL IS SO IMPORTANT TO JASON

In 2005, LTF's own Jason Scholder, invented an ergonomic yoga prop called the Three Minute Egg. In an effort to introduce his product to the world, he approached a multitude of master yogis and asked them for input on his invention. While some yogis of Aadil's stature turned their nose up at the idea that someone with as little yoga experience as Jason would have the audacity to redesign the iconic yoga block, Aadil simply saw its potential right away. Unfettered by the blind adherence to tradition, Aadil saw Jason's Egg as a beneficial alternative to the age-old rectangle whose limitations nobody had bothered to question. Aadil embraced the Egg, and made it all but mandatory in the many yoga studios around the world that represent the teachings of Purna Yoga. Jason feels eternal gratitude to Aadil for helping people see the magic in his yoga invention, and was further humbled by Aadil's willingness to take time out of his extremely busy life to sit for this interview. This is a very special episode. We hope you enjoy it.
