Longtime area yoga teacher, Linda Karl, founder of Metta Yoga in Batavia, is featured in the newly published book, "Conversations With Modern Yogis."

"Conversations with Modern Yogis" includes the conversation she had with Zubin Schroff in 2011 when he drove cross country to interview various well-known and lesser known yoga masters of America. Zubin Schroff contacted Linda for an interview based on her writings in her yoga blog, calling her a "fierce voice in the yoga blogosphere."

Linda is one of only two yoga teachers from the Chicago area featured in this book that also features such yoga luminaries as Erich Schiffmann, Richard Rosen, Angela Farmer, Sharon Gannon, David Life and many more.

"Less a compendium and more of a curated collection of personal insights from some of today's most influential yogis, 'Conversations With Modern Yogis' was created to raise important questions and fuel needed discussions among today's practitioners and teachers of yoga."

It is both humbling and an honor for Linda to be considered a thought leader in North American yoga. Copies of the book can be purchased via Amazon.

A long time teacher in the Fox Valley, Linda is the only yoga teacher who travels yearly to India to study yoga, dividing her time between India and Batavia. She has been called an innovator and a facilitator of deep healing. Seeking a paradigm shift in the local yoga scene, she takes students into the deeper dimensions of traditional yoga. Yoga Master Mark Whitwell says: "Please get your yoga practice from this wonderful person. She knows what she is doing. Linda has studied with the best teachers and can design a practice that is right for you."

Linda conducts small group classes, private classes, trains teachers, and is a yoga therapist. She can be reached at (630) 677-4501.
