Juli - you hit the nail on the head about the elite yoga club. Sometimes the hidden truth is - egotism has crept its way into a yoga instructor's personality. Yoga seems to be the only activity where one yoga teacher's students would trash another yoga school's display. Would a dog groomer do that to another dog groomer? Where is the (ahimsa) high ethical standard? Worst part - We can't accuse the men, because these are definitely yoginis doing it to each other. In my town there are no male yoga teachers! Some of us can't put a flyer up without another school ripping it down and putting theirs in that space. Tell me this is not about ego, jealousy and irony too!
In the case of warm ups, I like the approach Paul mentions in some of the newsletters. Basically, as we age, we should devote more time to the warm up. Warm ups are for injury prevention and so is restorative yoga. Related to that idea, restorative yoga is recommended for people who have a pre-existing injury, so why in the world would and yoga teacher recommend cutting the warm up time short? Its pure b.s.
