The Role and Importance of Yoga Yogi Yoginis

The Role and Importance of Yoga Yogi Yoginis

Used for OCR but can easily be adapted. Pupils will be able to identify the different types of yoga and why yogis/yoginis may be considered important to Hindus. I use Gavin Flood (1996) ‘Introduction to Hinduism’ for the information aspect but videos identified also explain the different types of yoga.
