Reflections : a book review by Emily Curtis

REFLECTIONS A Yogi on Her Journey By Karin O’Bannon

Not too long ago I discovered that one of my most precious teachers that I studied with in India, Karin O’Bannon, had passed away  She was a dedicated student of B.K.S. Iyengar and an Intermediate Senior Level 3 Iyengar Teacher herself.

Karin was a vital body in establishing the Iyengar Yoga Community in Los Angeles as well as dividing her time between Rishikesh, India where she lived and taught yoga and ran several yoga teacher-training courses. I was privileged to have completed my teacher training with her, as she was a teacher of great skill and knowledge and a true yogi through and through. She had a supreme knowledge of the physical side of yoga yet this knowledge expended far beyond to the deeper more subtle layers which yoga encapsulates.

After realizing her death I found her teachings live on in a wonderful little book titled ‘Reflections, A Yogi on her Journey’. This book offers a unique commentary on the Yoga Sutras, some of her personal Philosophies, her short stories and her drawings, which relate to the journey of yoga. It was a pleasure to read and a welcome change to the more technical yoga books available and I would recommend it.

It is available from Amazon.com for $20.00, plus postage because it is sent from the US. Here is an extract from the book:

INQUIRY : 

  • Why is the snake so important?
  • Why does Lord Siva wear snakes around his neck?
  • Why does Lord Vishnu have Ananta, the snake as his vehicle?
  • Why does Sage Patanjali fall into the hand of his mother in the form of a tiny snake?
  • Why does the snake speak to Mother Eve in front if the Tree of Knowledge?

REFLECTION:

  • The snake’s body forms a question mark.
  • He asks the questions that shake our ideas of reality.
  • He makes us question our prejudices and preferences.
  • He brings us discriminating discernment.
  • Then, like the snake, we shed the covering of the body of wisdom.
