Hittleman's show first appeared on TV in Los Angeles on July 2, 1961.
I searched a newspaper database for Hittleman's name and came up with
the following entry, which appeared on the TV listings page (J12) of
the Los Angeles Times for Monday, July 2, 1961:
9:30 am on channel 11:
Yoga for Health (30 min.)
DEBUT -- Richard Hittleman hosts Monday-Friday show featuring Yoga exercises.
In addition, the LA Times ran a series of articles on yoga in January
of 1961 in which Hittleman was prominently featured.
