EP 1.12: Greville Henwood – “Who am I? And what am I doing here?”.

Show Notes Episode 12

I recently had the pleasure of speaking to my friend and fellow yoga teacher Greville Henwood.

We open the podcast by talking about how Greville discovered yoga, by way of orange-clad monks when he was a small child and a journey that led in time to the Trocadero in Paris and eventually to the west coast of America.

We talk about California and the evolution of yoga in America.

He talks about how one of his students, his girlfriend, a senior yoga teacher and a dream in Shanghai pointed him in the direction of teaching yoga to children and we talk extensively about the philosophy and knowledge behind GroovyKids™ Yoga.

We discuss the world in the time of Covid-19 and the business of teaching yoga at this time and Greville talks about his hopes for a post-coronavirus world.

About Greville Henwood

Greville Henwood was born in England, but since the age of 18 he’s lived in Paris, then Copenhagen until he moved to Los Angeles in 1987.  He had intended to become an actor and indeed appeared in Jesus Christ Superstar and Star Trek.  However, somehow yoga has pretty much always been in his life.

He completed his yoga teacher trainings at the famous Yoga Works studio in Santa Monica with Maty Ezraty and Lisa Walford, and eventually he started teaching kids yoga.  He founded GroovyKids™ Yoga and now teaches GroovyKids™ Yoga teacher trainings all over the world.

Greville is based mainly in Los Angeles and is available for public and private teachings, as well as customised retreats and teacher trainings.
