"having dipped my toes in the LA yoga scene…well, he nailed it."

Really? I saw what looked like some flashes of Exhale in Venice. And a cheap endorsement of Yoga Works (in Venice) there at the end, and some street scenes from . . . yeah, you got it . . . Venice. Waylon, did you go anywhere else except Venice and maybe Santa Monica? Venice is maybe 3% of the LA "yoga scene" and Santa Monica is maybe another 2%. I have lived and practiced in LA for a long, long time, and none of the images in the video "nailed" anything about my experience of 95% of the LA yoga community.

I think it is a good video that is funny and well made. But to introduce it by saying that it characterizes a large, complex and very rich community of practitioners is to manifest the same kind of shallowness that the video pokes fun at.
