Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Good article. Interesting times. Yoga teachers are starting to become like Starbucks - one on every corner. "Oh, you're looking for shoulderstand pose? That's taught at the corner of 5th and Mission. The Vinyasa class? That's at 3rd and Market. "
And yes, I share in Richard, Judith and Sandy''s sentiments about the Yoga Room and Donald Moyer. Kate Coughlin (Director of Downtown Yoga in Pleasanton) is hugely influenced by Donald Moyer and YR. Donald's the genuine article no doubt.
I also don't think there's anything wrong with teaching yoga for a living. My experience is that it is certainly not easy to make a buck at first. But that's not my primary motivation in teaching. It's a good job and a noble profession - rewarding in many ways. it's a good challenge to remain balanced in the practice and the business at the same time.
ok - back to my day job.
