Prem Carlisi Interview 2016

Prem Carlisi Interview

Prem is such a pleasure to talk to, he is open and genuine and with so many years behind him both practicing and as a teacher his connection with what really matters is right there. The focus of this interview was really his early years starting out with yoga but as you can imagine we soon digressed to many even more worthwhile topics.

In the end I think we did circle around to answer the question I posed at the beginning about moon phase and how it might influence our practice but there were some great journeys along the way.

I was extremely lucky to be able to catch up with Paul Dallaghan while I was teaching a retreat in Samahita Retreat in Thailand. In this interview I get to talk to Paul about the teachers that influenced his practice, the studies he has now undertaken and how he feels the physical yoga practice sits within a general approach to health and fitness.
