It's all Shiva-like: from death came rebirth. How often (always?) does that happen for us, if we are willing to ride the waves?
Your prose is lyrical.
Don't get me wrong, I needed more than just yoga. But yoga was the touchstone for me. Still is. Every day.
That is all.
We learn the hard way, the ones who stay in business & thrive. I know I did.
And I am getting sooooo tired of hearing teachers say you can't earn a living teaching yoga. You CAN. You just need to learn the business skills.
Brands make yoga, and everything, easier to pop into a box and categorise, and that's how we humans understand the world.
That said, I, like Michaelle, have been injured in branded yoga, and that's why I teach the way I do. I also have massive problems with authority, especially if I suspect it hasn't been earned. So there's that.
Thanks for opening up the debate, Mary!
Although I no longer practice Ashtanga, the almost-decade in which I did was a one of getting strong, and getting over a lot of my own shit. So I could do some deep emotional healing.
