U talkin to – My Body?
Since I had to return home before completing a full 10 days of Anusara thought I’d just complete my comments with some follow-up notes — about one of my favorite puzzles in yoga practice- the male authority body (as renown teacher “expert”) instructing female student bodies.
Oh, people will insist that that’s just not true, after all we have Judith Lasatar and Shiva Rae and Patricia Walden and Ana Forrest but they don’t have centers and affiliates named after them the way John Friend and Bikram do. Or language that they’ve trademarked (although that Shiva Rae sure knows how to market her all-American yoga girl stuff!)
So I began to wonder if all the “chest-puffing” I was subjected to in Anusara was just, well, how do I say this to my yogi-brothers- a bit of “breast-envy”?! Women don’t puff their chests cause we’re naturally puffed there- and furthermore my kidneys are puffed cause I got a nice booty too! Sorry, fellows, that you got to work so hard at getting some!
