A nice moment: first time I remember seeing yoga front-and-center on the home page of nytimes.com in four years of blogging.
Featured in this Sunday’s NY Times Magazine, and on the cover of nytimes.com at present, is a feature on how yoga can mess us up.
We’ve been saying this for years*: all yoga is not yoga. Yoga is not an exercise, merely. Without proper alignment, you will hurt yourself sooner or later. Without breath to relax and naturally align, you will hurt yourself sooner or later. Without drishti, without training by teachers who were themselves properly trained…yoga is bad for you.
