Thank you William Broad for your efforts.
I understand that you are concerned for the yoga community and I'm guessing that your attempting to satisfy your needs for safety, integrity and acknowledgement. I hope you accomplish what ever goals you have intended for yourself in this life and I'm sure your book will make millions.
I also doubt that you will be reading my words and that's ok. In fact, I didn't get around to reading the first article in the NY Times until this morning. My yoga students even emailed it to me so that I could be a part of the buzz. With a business to run and Yoga teacher training to attend I couldn't bring my self to make reading the article on your book a priority.
This morning however; no one came to the Rise and Shine class I'm offering at 7am and the men from the personal training facility next door shared the sex scandal article with me. This I had to read...Bravo to you...who designed your marketing plan?
With the last article I thought it best to remain firmly grounded in my own beliefs and skip reading it all together. I have to admit I prefer the safety article.
I can almost guarantee that if we met you and I could have an amazingly intimate relationship with or without sex and it's not because I practice yoga. It's not because you're a well established older man and it's not because I'm a beautiful, spirited and flexible young woman :) The reason that you and I could connect is because we are humans and we share something that exists with in each of us. Christians call it Jesus & Quakers call it InnerLight. At this time I'm aiming for a modified version of connection which entails you writing articles that arouse the yoga community and me possibly responding on my blog if I can make the time to read your words.
I hope your article doesn't attract any perverts to my yoga studio and I plan to satisfy my need for consideration through relationships other then the one I have with you.
