Eddie Stern is among a trio of high-profile yoga teachers interviewed by the folks over at HuffPost Religion; the theme is: “What’s the real reason to do yoga?”
There’s a 32-minute Soundcloud at this here link. From the page:
Everyone knows that yoga is everywhere. Studios are popping up on every street corner and there are yoga classes available in every gym. For many, the image of the yoga movement includes intimidatingly fit and limber young people with tight yoga pants doing poses that, for many, feels way out of reach.
Yoga has even become a political issue. Washington D.C. has levied what is being called a ‘yoga tax’ and included yoga studios in the broader fitness category and subjected them to the same tax as health clubs.
Strangely, to me, is that they don’t mention the yoga in schools issue — maybe it is somewhere in the 32 minutes and I missed that part. Eddie comes in at about the 21 minute mark and talks a little about his start with yoga.
