e-Sutra, January 2005, The Case for the 3-D Diaphragm
This is a rough draft of some material I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. It is written in a somewhat technical style that presupposes a certain level of anatomical knowledge in the reader. It can be viewed as a follow-up to the discussion of Breath Flow archived on e-Sutra.
e-Sutra, April 1999, Leslie Kaminoff Interviews T.K.V. Desikachar in Madras, October, 1992
This is an amazing interview in which Desikachar and I talk about a wide range of subjects, including the relationshop between Yoga and Hinduism, the view of ego in Yoga, the difficulty in preserving tradition, Patanjali’s view on the inevitability of suffering, and the future of Yoga in America.
e-Sutra, April 1999, National Yoga Certification Debate
This is the first, longest, and most important e-Sutra thread. It’s the whole reason I started the list. What we do or don’t do about this process will affect the teaching of yoga in America for the next several generations….and the clock is ticking.
e-Sutra, November 2001, Breath Flow in Yoga Practice
This is an excellent thread that contains lots of valuable technical information about breathing styles in various traditions of Yoga practice. It was initiated by a query from Mukunda Stiles. The dialogue turned into a challenging re-evaluation of some of breathing’s “sacred cows.”
