A word from someone else

I'm finding it impossible to write anything this week. A few of you know why. Something pretty amazing actually happened in my yoga world and I may spill the beans at some future date...

For now I'm just gonna redirect you to a nice new little blog from one of my former Boston teachers. She has a good review up of a seminar that she went to last weekend. It's very articulate, and I am 100% on board with every word in it. Especially that bit about "modifications." I was absolutely "raised" on the concept that there are no modifications in Bikram yoga (just like "there's no crying in baseball!" ha), but so many people seem to have trouble getting their head around that idea. (The number of times I've heard teachers say, "just modify the posture like this"... aaarghh.... )

Go here!

EDITED 8/21 TO ADD:  I've gotta go with my first instinct and keep my mouth shut on this topic, mainly because the story could reflect really badly on a certain other person, and I've always made a point of avoiding bad-mouthing on here.  So if you were holding your breath.... stop doing that.  ;-)
