Yoga Wants to Be Free
One hundred years ago, travelling swamis and Dalit Sikh yogis used to give free public yoga lectures and only charge for small group and private lessons. That way you could try a free sample before you made a purchase. But after the influence of Bhajanism there is no free yoga anymore.
Sex Money Ego Sloth
With the Bhajanists you don’t get a free sample and you don’t even get hands-on teaching for paid lessons. Bhajanist kundalini teachers are prohibited from touching students during class pursuant to their textbook, The Aquarian Teacher. A Bhajanist teacher will not even tell you if your body is in the correct position on the yoga mat.
No Free Yoga
If you want to get near anybody in a white turban it is very expensive and not just in yoga dollars. You could be paying Yoga West thousands of dollars to develop a fake yoga practice and that is going to really cost you in the long run. The good news is that you no longer need a yoga teacher. Prior to modern visual technology the only way you could learn yoga was from a teacher or a book. Now we have YouTube with all the yoga lessons you could ever need.
Parking Lot Story
Dev Avtar and Yoga West are fond of reiterating the “parking lot coins” allegory from The Aquarian Teacher. Legend has it that Yogi Bhajan would toss coins out into the parking lot so that the grubby hippies could pick them up and pay for his early kundalini yoga lessons. The point being that you should never give a free yoga lesson. Forty years later Yoga West still has the same grubby hippie mentality except that the only way you can take a yoga class is if they charge your debit card in advance. The point of this blog is that the Bhajanists have lost the ability to deliver a value driven product to the marketplace. Bhajanism is simply not a good value for your yoga dollar.
