Not All Bent Out of Shape


The New York Times this weekend has a lengthy article on the “problem with Yoga”. And the story was briefly picked up by Diane Sawyer yesterday. It is an outrageous article that mocks one of the most valuable activities that individuals can engage in. But it needs to be taught by a well trained, experienced and compassionate teacher who will always lead the group members into listening to their body and not doing anything that feels in anyway uncomfortable. I searched far and wide for such a studio, Salutations, in Glen Head, NY. I drive about 12 miles each way for this experience. And it has kept me well, moving and emotionally healthy in my advanced age.
The profession needs to be monitored by the participants. And no one should do anything that hurts.
