One piece to this story about how England — like virtually everywhere else — lacks real oversight of yoga instruction and training caught my eye:
The BWY is the official governing body for England, appointed by Sports England, but this fancy title comes with no power, only recognition amongst those in the know.
If Paul had the power to go into training institutions around the county he said he would likely close 75% of them down.
That’s a pretty strong indictment, albeit from someone who’d stand to benefit from getting more power to approve or disapprove of teacher trainings.
Beyond that the story touches on mostly familiar territory.
On the opposite end of the yoga spectrum, the Washington Post has a series of pretty wonderful photos of Himalayan holy men in yoga poses. Click here.
