fierce… no other word for it. love the comparison btw peacock and him. hilarious… amazing to watch. thx!
genius post: hilarious!
Jerky, wobbly, violent, show-offy. Reminds me of the sign in the "Hank Scorpio" episode of the Simpsons: "Work out for better tyranny"
not yoga.. but the comparison to a peacock is apt! Esp. in the first video, where it seems like he keeps checking to see if the women coming in are watching him (they're not)
Not yoga??? what is yoga? those of you who talk trash about anyone should go back and read the sutras and check in with your 8 limbs. Hes not doing asanga practices that are like other people. So there for people say hes not doing Yoga. Asana is only one of the 8 limbs. Like swami sachiichanada said. "Keep your body as clean as possible, and doit in what ever way is best for your.". are you people saying his asana program does not cleanse, stretch, and strengthen the body. It may be time for you people to take a anatomy and theory or athletic training class. Stop being judgmental and stop talking out of your asses. yes hes brash and out spoken. thats called being in your balanced 3r chakara. Your dont like him because he reminds you of what your not. Honest and open and not affraid!!!! namaste and good luck. you close minded yogis will need it!!!
They are right that was very peacocky and I was doing my yoga as martial arts and it was all yang and I didn't realize it was being video'ed, which whenever in public should be assumed. Way too much coffee that day I can see. Perhaps I was just freaked out and needing a dose of a real life of the road after 20 years of performance v.s. service; and a deeper calmer practice. Well, I got all that. Married with twins on the tray; surviving the Tsunami and daily quakes and pending melt down in Japan, while caring for my pregnant wife… Sometimes YouTube content are like a bad day or a tattoo; there there, and we need to accept the good and improve ne :)(:
Thanks for the Clear Mirror Everyone!..

don't worry Duncan, we'll always love ya!
Rob, I like Duncan…this was just meant humorously, from one peacock to another (though I have no such skills worth peacocking about!). Nothing wrong with shining…as that quote says:
What We Fear the Most
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure,
It is our light not darkness that most frightens us,
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear; Our presence automatically liberates others.

Hey, you're awesome Duncan, and please know that this was sincerely meant in fun—I'm sick to death of folks being casually mean in public to those who are putting themselves out there, and don't want to do such myself! ~ Waylon
Haterz don't know, Duncan is the man….Big Heart…
Oh, I'm not a hater! See our convo above. He seems like a big hearted man as you said.
