You know I can't afford fo attend a studio frequently. I don't think they're in New York City area, either. Are those Adamantine guys online anywhere?

or, to get a reasonable facsimile should I just look at Astanga primary series online ...

Your comments brought up something that has been noodling around in my mind for some time. About three years ago I met an amazing yoga teacher and continued working with him as he developed a wonderful sequence he calls Adamantine. www.mathewkoderyoga.com/about-adaman

Matthew is a student of my teacher James Miller.
The point here is that once I found Adamantine, I felt as if I had come home to the place I was meant to be for my yoga practice. So you are right, yoga will survive the commercialization because of the heart of it.

Unbundle the fact that the authors of this article all represent commercial yoga interests, and not some old-fashioned swami with some secret basement shala where they teach by donation (The Master Swami, though not from India, comes a little closer ...), you can consider that their heart is (still) in the right place ...

Yoga will survive all the commercialization, all the hype, and all the Cirque du Soleil-esque side shows ... and much of the fanfare will blow over ...

if only due to competition from online practices and us self-sequencers ...

yoga is an exploration of what your body is capable of doing, and how you can transform your body over time." As Dr. Judith Lasater puts it, Yoga is not about touching your toes, it's about what you learn on the way down.


very true!

"You know, you know. There are so many benefits of yoga: It can relieve stress and anxiety. It can soothe your headaches. It can even make you smarter.

But for first-timers, yoga can be absolutely intimidating. Those virtuoso yogis always seem to be balancing on their heads while playing a ukulele in one hand and writing poetry with the other. Or something like that.

Before you write off yoga as a practice for your artsy, flexible friends, take a moment to reconsider. You don't need to be able to do a headstand to reap the benefits of the ancient art. ..."
