The beauty of yoga is slipping away with commmercialism and straying from the eight limbs. Let’s heal the past and move forward with love, breath and light.

We trust our gurus to have our best interests at heart. If we cant trust our guru to behave appropriately, who can we trust? This kind of sexual misconduct can affect people’s lives and those around them for lifetimes. Let’s grow up, humankind

I listened to Karen's interview. She is not a liar or a fantasist but an honest victim. I am shocked at how she has been treated by the community and how she has had to justify herself. Something needs to happen to acknowledge the suffering these people experienced and allow them and the community to move forward. It is the right and respectful thing to do.

Part of the beauty of Yoga is that it stands for nonharming, truth and compasion.. let's see these qualities being used now to show good leadership and powerful recognition of past immoral actions!
