I left IYNAUS with great relief last year. I did join another nation’s association. But I don’t care one whit if somehow I am “outed”. Manouso is my teacher. I stand by him. I stand by Rita. How much so will come clear soon.
This is Insane. When did yoga teachers become the Nazi Stasi? I am so disgusted with all yoga organisations – they seem to be just another delusion of ego.
Granddaughter (Abhi) has been listening to the wrong people.
When dictators and or movements start losing followers and power, they keep tightening the reins in the misplaced hope that they will keep their power.
It ain’t going to happen.
They got rid of the one person (Manouso) who could have and would have worked tirelessly to keep this whole thing together.
Thank you to those of you brave enough to comment. I know there are many who do not have the financial freedom to speak up and need to keep the income that is entwined with their Iyengar yoga certification. It’s an illusion. Yoga is freedom. May you soon be free to study with those who inspire you — no matter the brand; no matter the teacher.
