Cease & Desist? Let’s Try Peace & Exist. {YogaGlo Petition from Yoga Alliance.}

Sign this petition if you’re upset with YogaGlo.

Oh, YogaGlo.

To all of the other yogis out there striving to maintain a sense of understanding and compassion for all parties involved in the cease and desist “scandal” surrounding YogaGlo and Yoga International—who, by the way, has handled this situation with grace—the following, to me at least, says a lot.

I’m an RYT, so I was extremely interested to get an email from Yoga Alliance this afternoon.

The email states:

“We call on YogaGlo to live up to its claim of encouraging “more access to yoga, not less,” by withdrawing its patent application. We also encourage our Registered Yoga Teachers and Registered Yoga Schools, and anyone else who supports yoga and/or the appropriate use of the U.S. patent system, to sign this petition asking YogaGlo to withdraw its patent application.”

Considering that we’ve had more than one thoughtful elephant journal author write about this story for our beloved site, I don’t feel that, at this point, I can add anything filled with further insight or clarity.

However, this email has a potentially profound impact as yoga teachers call on the voices in our community for guidance.

I plan on signing this petition—especially after reading YogaGlo’s rather-lame public explanation—and I hope you do too.

Spread the word.

Spread the love.
