The timing of this is odd with all the work that he put into recent events. For some reason they can't keep a president for long. Maybe the people who pull the strings gave him the hook.

No need to read tea leaves. John Matthews is a good man and had good intentions, while he tried to repair an image. Maybe it is the law of karma that causes reactions among teachers around the yoga world. The creation of any organization has a reason. That reason may be for the good or not for the good. For US yoga teachers, it is time to consider the ethics of the organization itself.

Patience grasshoppers. Maybe they have a two year limit on how long a president can hold office. Why create conspiracy theories? Fact is, none of us will ever know what's going on over at YA. But they are getting better. They have disclosed more information with John Matthews guidance and there is no reason to believe things will change. Let's see what happens.

Why paint Yoga Alliance as a diabolical company? New yoga teachers will discover the truth out for themselves, so there is no need to be opinionated. We'll see what they become now and forgive them. For the sake of yoga, let's let go of the past.

"We'll see what they become now." A tiger's stripes do not change. You can forgive a thief for stealing but the fact remains a thief will steal again.
