Ashtanga, and Eddie Stern, make the New York Times weddings section

I know there’s a whole group of people who ravenously consume the New York Times wedding/celebrations section. The Times, for those who don’t know, pick at random — i.e. pick people of some repute, ill or not, scions of families familiar and those with particularly dramatic tales of love — to document. This week, a … Continue reading Ashtanga, and Eddie Stern, make the New York Times weddings section

Eddie Stern and his ‘pose posse’ get nice New York Times treatment

The New York Times has a wonderful feature — with video — of Eddie Stern, which is quickly making the rounds of social media. You can find the  link right here if you haven’t already seen it. I won’t go so far as to say it is a bit redemptive for the Times, which yesterday … Continue reading Eddie Stern and his ‘pose posse’ get nice New York Times treatment

Eddie Stern: William Broad, you’ve been served

In just the past couple of days, Eddie Stern has tossed a lot up on his AYNY blog (and re-designed it again). We’ll to everything, if you’ve missed it, but we’ll begin with his (self-admittedly delayed) response to a William Broad article in the New York Times last fall: As Broad’s by-line lists him as … Continue reading Eddie Stern: William Broad, you’ve been served

Eddie Stern in video — now with Russian subtitles

We covered Eddie Stern and his “Pose Posse” receiving the New York Times treatment almost two years ago. Now, for some reason, the Times’ video with that piece has gotten a Russian subtitle. I don’t know, there’s something fascinating about the translation of yoga from India, to the West, and then on from there. I’d … Continue reading Eddie Stern in video — now with Russian subtitles

NY Times writer at it again: This time, it’s women in danger from yoga

William Broad, the New York Times writer who ticked off a bunch of yogis (including Eddie Stern) with his book last year, and excerpted article in the Times, highlighting the dangers of yoga, is at it again. Last time, it was mostly men who were at risk from yoga. With less flexibility than women, many … Continue reading NY Times writer at it again: This time, it’s women in danger from yoga

Eddie Stern as a ‘boldface name’ and is Third Series really the new Second?

We posted a quick link to this on our Facebook page yesterday (and on my own page Eddie responded to it just hilariously; the man really has got “it,” whatever that is), but since there seems to be a slightly different audience, let’s get this here, too. Eddie and the big Bent on Learning gala … Continue reading Eddie Stern as a ‘boldface name’ and is Third Series really the new Second?

Eddie Stern: Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, even ones like the tax department

The New York Times has caught up to the story that seemed to have gripped New York yoga studios for a while: Whether those studios should have to collect the state’s 4.5% sales tax. We note it because this story includes a terrific quotation from Eddie Stern, one that captures his compelling sense of humor: … Continue reading Eddie Stern: Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, even ones like the tax department

Three things to read, from Eddie Stern and the NY Times

I’m waking up for my first practice in nearly a week (see why here), and I’m getting my prana on — i.e. I’ve just started my second cup of coffee. And three things on the Internet catch my eye that seem worth sharing. Maybe it’s five things. You judge. The first two are via Eddie … Continue reading Three things to read, from Eddie Stern and the NY Times
