  • Pretty awesome.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • It is great

  • I think thats a nice chart. Maybe a bit too US centric. Yoga came much earlier to Europe without breaks through the silk route. There was always a contact between all the cultures. Certain philosophers eg. Schopenhauer (19 century), many Indolgists like Sir John Woodroffe and many others made it public and accessible for others. I think this chart shows just one perspective. I do not like to see Yoga only from “guru” centric perspectives. There have been much more involved as it is showing on this chart.
