In May of last year I blogged about the issues with the consumer industry’s acquisition of yoga. I am so excited that this idea is getting a lot more discussion recently. Gregor Maehle and Petri Raisanen are featured in this proposal for a documentary film Kickstarter inquiring into the issue. If you can help them with their project financially please do. There is not long left, but it is a matter close to my heart, so I felt compelled to share it.
The second video here is also a very interesting discussion about the issues with the modern yoga industry with Gregor Maehle. I love the part where he remembers how he and many seekers went to India to escape the machine (to not just be a cog) and how the yoga industry signifies a paradoxical ‘return to the machine’. Strange, but true.
