The Rhythm of Respect

Come experience how the authority of the Seun Saenyg ("one who was born before you") and the Guru ("teacher") influence the instruction of p'ungmul (Korean percussion) and Indian yoga. While great respect is given to teachers in both physical activities, each possesses a different underlying philosophy: concern for the group practice in day-to-day life in p'ungmul versus the union of mind and body in the individual in yoga. Join presenters to try out basic Korean rhythms and simple asanas (yoga poses) and learn how the Korean and Indian immigrant communities use these disciplines to teach cultural values.


Recorded Saturday, March 24, 2007 at Indo-American Center.
