  1. I like this:

    “…John Friend, the creator of another popular form of yoga, called Anusara, likes to say that Anusara is the “yoga of yes.” Tim Miller tells me, only half-jokingly, that Ashtanga is the “yoga of no…”

    Re-reading the vanity fair article ( btw I didn´t find the foto in it) I found it
    very thought provoking.
    The red line to me is how differently people perceive guru figures.
    Lack of discernment and simple mindedness are bitter lessons – not only
    on a spiritual path.
    We don´t have to go to south india to find out about the lot of grey there is
    in people – (and gurus) between all black and white.
    Sigmund Freud´s analysis of the subconsciousness
    is just another side of the big coin of yoga.
    Maybe one facet of the “asthanga scene struggle” is the typical male approach
    to define “absolute” methods, persons and schools, which prevents from seeing
    all the fine facets and shades on a winding road.
    I´m actually happy to have found you as my asthanga teacher for this very reason.
    Your approach is much more intuitive & deep reaching – showing the fore-
    AND rearsides of yoga at the same time.
    As the sages from the east say: everyone gets the teacher he deserves.
    Good karma and no need for india any time soon !
