From the last chapter of Yoga Beyond Fitness:
"If teachers grounded in the deeper message of Yoga are not available or do not share what they know, Srivatsa Ramaswami predicts 'the subject will die because every following generation will know less and less. And the lack of knowledge could be filled with innovations of novices, leading to corruption or the art dying itself.'"
I attended Tom's talk last night -- see this post -- and have a lot to say about it but y'all will have to wait until next week.
Until then chew on the above quote from my teacher, Srivatsa Ramaswami (Krishnamacharya's longest standing student outside of the family), whom Tom quotes a lot in his book Yoga Beyond Fitness.
Talk amongst yourselves.
To be continued....
