Daddy Yoga Speaks

He's the undisputed original gangsta' of hatha yoga. It all started with BKS Iyengar trying to cure himself of TB:
Guru ji started practicing yoga to cure his own illness, tuberculosis. But a fortuitous meeting with violinist Yehudi Menuhin in 1952 opened his doors to the West. He simplified complex yoga asanas, or poses, and performed thousands of demonstrations for the benefit of his new audience, transforming a mystical secret practice into a science, therapy and art accessible to everyone. The focus is on precision and proper alignment of the body.And now we've got "Bling-Bling" Bikram Choudhury shoving himself down our throats as he attempts to copyright what BKS Iyengar brought to the West for free. Surely, another sign of the end-times.
