I Am a Yogi
I Am a Yogi
An Album of reflections, stories, and philosophies from the life of Margrit Segesman, prepared by Lucille Wood. This book includes a DVD of Margrit's last public appearance.
Authored and compiled by Lucille Wood, this book draws on the extensive archives of over 60 years of Gita in Melbourne and beyond. Through recollections, stories, media clippings, letters, pictures and a DVD, the reader is given an insight into the character and charisma of Margrit Segesman, along with a deeper understanding of the founding history and development of Gita Yoga ( and yoga more broadly) in Australia.
This book defies categorisation - while at its heart it is the story of Margrit herself, it also relates the history and development of yoga in Australia, the story of a solo (and foreign) woman setting up a radical business in conservative 1950s Melbourne, and documents too the changing landscape of Melbourne society and culture which is its setting.
I Am a Yogi is the book to read if you've ever wondered what it would be like to have a cup of tea and a conversation with Margrit Segesman. It is truly food for the soul, and will set spirits soaring and hearts singing.
