Real People Do Asanas

I cut and paste from Linda’s blog, the entire entry is a must-read:

She remembers what Kausthub (Desikachar’s son) had taught in his class: 

“Today asana has been made into a photograph. There is no difference between this and gymnastics. We see calendars with photographs of someone balancing on a rock in a headstand…even naked yoga. But asana is not a performance, asana is what happens in the posture and afterwards.”

Was blessed to have been invited where real people do real asanas.
