The practice of yoga was traditionally passed from teacher to student. The teacher moderated the flow of information based on what the student was ready to learn. Today, a 24-hour yoga studio is employing teachers and practitioners around the world to open the floodgates. This studio is called the internet.
The internet is drowning the general population with information about yoga that is flawed, untrue and unearned. Students and seekers of the great truths underlying our existence are flailing amidst the waves of words, images and videos constantly crashing onto their screens.
When it comes to yoga, access to information is not a right. It is a privilege. The teachings must be sought and procured from credible and trustworthy sources over time. The teachings must be earned.
