It's free, just bring your yoga mat!
“Perhaps the biggest difference between the magazine Judith founded and the one I edit today is that while Yoga Journal continues to be a source of instruction and insight on yogic practices, it is now also a chronicle of the ever-evolving yoga scene–a scene that didn’t exist 35 years ago and one that some old-time practitioners would, quite frankly, find un-yogic.”
(The bold words are in the source post…)
“It’s a messy time to be in the business of covering yoga. Some yoga publications that offered a purist’s view of the practice are no longer in print, while “workout yoga” is popular on the newsstand. Yoga Journal remains devoted to bringing a full spectrum of teachings to a wide audience, and it does so while walking the age-old line of art and commerce.”
We’ll be glad to put this behind us, at least for now. It’s the kind of question that will probably, and should probably come up from time to time.I am not ready to put “behind me” some of the really important points Ms. Lasater brought up in her letter to Yoga Journal. After having awareness raised, is it really a good idea to try to hide the fruits of that inquiry? I was glad to be reminded that I care about the production of images in our culture and how they affect us. Thank you Judith Hanson Lasater!!
