Some time ago I was out to eat with a fellow yoga teacher. The restaurant, naturally, had both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. As we discussed the menu, my companion, a teacher of far greater experience with the goings on inside the yoga community than I, shared some surprising insights. Thereafter ensued an illuminating discussion about what many yoga teachers eat when other yogis, particularly those from the vegan-activist sector of the yoga world, aren’t looking. Last year, one such yoga teacher came out of the meat-eating closet with a vengeance.
I teach yoga and yoga philosophy in Washington D.C. and vicinity. This is where I offer thoughts and observations on the relevance of traditional yoga scripture to contemporary yoga practice and culture. You can find my complete profile and teaching schedule here.
