“Spirituality and Inner Peace can Suck it!” ~ New York Magazine.
Bikram and friends have been pushing yoga as a competitive sport for the past few years, irking traditionalists (like yours truly) to no end. Strangely, however, this is one thing that doesn’t bother me about yoga’s manifestation in America. Historically, yoga was full of competition—and I fully buy Bikram’s wish that yoga, if it reaches the Olympics, will succeed in inspiring millions of youngsters who wouldn’t otherwise cross this otherwise esoteric, difficult path.
