It is the Healing Arts Festival in the mid 1990s that really boosts the awareness of ashtanga yoga in the UK. For a few years Derek Ireland and Gingi Lee (above), and Kristina Ireland do demonstrations at the festival to promote the Practice Place in Greece. “We would switch on an album by Deep Forest, move through the practice, one breath per posture and it was a crowd stopper. It was an exciting time as yoga was catching on in a big way". This was the pre-runner to today's mega commercial Yoga Show.
