De-mystifying the Guru: The Case of John Friend and Anusara Yoga

“Good heart felt article. It was actually 1994, the Desai story at Kripalu. I was there in his last graduating class two months before the sad news broke and broke the community. And they survived for the better. All part of the yoga play, the evolution, God's lila. Best!”

Eating Disorders in the Playground

“Each time I read your posts, I have anxiety and sadness. I have to move thru that with my yoga techniques. At one time, I taught yoga to women with eating disorders and it was a way for them to affirm their own self-love vs.self-hatred. sigh. You say, "we have a beautiful opportunity to affirm our love for the children in our care and help them cultivate self love and a positive self-image." Yes, you are right but first one must find and affirm that self love within which is often lacking. Our children as you say look to us a role models. The only model that I have ever found that works is thru the heart and spirit, that is where the healing is assured. Children are sooo close to THAT, they love to connect to that happy place where they ARE Perfect. There are many yoga for children classes sprouting up all over and studies show that it is life changing for them. Thank you for bringing awareness to this issue and leading by example thru your own journey.”
