I am in Miami but the above feature Is worth a quick post via my iPad.
Jai & bravo to Heather Timmons & Firstpost India for a sweet & succinct rebuttal to the dramatic " Yoga Injury " article last week. As Shakespeare phrased it , " Much ado about nothing."
" Om My God Who Wrecked Our Yoga " is the OG Indian voice to what I have been observing via this blog platform. Yoga may have been India's greatest export / gift to the US but is now just a form of Western exercise.
Their tone of gentle mockery ( Works better than snark ) Skewers all the manias of Western practitioners. Bottom line is ! No relation to The Yuj , the original etymology of Yoga , as in " to yoke " ; it is not just about asanas , it is about the union of body , mind & spirit.
