Jason Brown is a fellow New Yorker. He's been around. And he's also not some martial arts or dancer dude turned yoga instructor.

I have in this city (so far - I, personally, am NO big consumer of commercialized yoga - active members in this team know this much about me) have had more videogenic (but too-young and in a hurry) yoga teachers who do not want to share their gift of teaching via mass media.

Which I think is one part selfishness and two parts, their lineage guru℠ may sue them.

Very interesting, thank you for sharing!
The author looks very different on the pic beside the article than he does in the video, too...

NYC yoga teacher meets his own practice on the mat while walking his talk and creating a new (commercial, sure -- but not out to intimidate/show off to/cross-promote live workshops to dvd users, but to actually TEACH the newbie and perennial beginner actual vinyasa yoga ...imho)

"In that second shoot I genuinely had a practice for myself, as I do daily, with virtually no regard for the camera. And the difference was palpable. There was a sense of privacy and intimacy and timelessness. Only through a combination of happen-stance and my personal needs in that moment, was I actually able to let go of the self-consciousness that usually comes with picture taking and engage the soul of my practice. "

and for what he went through during self-instruction with his own DVD

The only other time I read anything by a yoga teacher who practiced to their own work (minus too much of the self-awareness without self-deprecation - SO unnecessary imho) was in the last chapter of Cyndi Lee's book May I Be Happy ...
