They received the title of men and women who have excelled in various professional fields such as martial arts, health, education and altruistic actions.

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM BIKRAM

Posted by on 9:18 am in Announcements | 0 comments

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM BIKRAM

About Advanced Seminar and Yoga Championships   My Advanced Seminar scheduled for Phuket, Thailand on June 22, 2014 will be the last openly public Advanced Seminar I will be doing.  There will also be no more Bishnu Ghosh Yoga Championship after this year’s International Finals in London in May, or relationship with Bikram Yoga and any Yoga Championships for now. There are times when self reflection is necessary to redirect things when they are moving in the wrong direction.  In my Teacher Trainings and Lectures, I often talk about the importance in Yoga Vedanta, to “keep your two feet in one boat,” to stay on the line, the direct journey to your destination.  One hair off the line, and the further you go, the farther away you get, until one day you’ve travelled in a complete circle, and like a yellow cab in Manhattan, you end up standing in the same parking space where you started, with 250,000 miles on your odometer, you’ve gone nowhere, or at least lost somewhere far from your ultimate destination.  You cannot start your journey if you don’t know your destination, but you’ll never get there if you are facing the wrong direction, or go off the line. I have been thinking a lot over the past couple of years about the direction Bikram Yoga has been taking, and I do accept some responsibility for it.  Since the big Centennial Yoga Expo in 2003, where we initiated the Bishnu Ghosh Cup International Yoga Asana Championship, to commemorate the incredible and profound influence my Guru has had on Physical Culture throughout and beyond the 20th Century, the spread and practice of the Advanced Class of 84 Postures has increased to where it is out of control.  I have been hearing many stories of people getting injured and developing chronic problems from the attempt to practice all 84 Postures. My Guru, Bishnu Charan Ghosh sent me to Japan and to the West because he saw what I had created with the system of 26 Beginning Postures, 2 Breathing Exercises, a way to bring the practice of Yoga Asana as a means of improving and maintaining health therapeutically, and increasing longevity of life, in a way no one else had been able to do.  He was committed to the mission of his brother, Paramahansa Yogananda, who was told by his Guru Sri Yukteswar Giriji, that he would be the one to introduce the Science of Yoga to the Western World.  But the accessibility to every person was ultimately quite limited, discriminating, only for few.  Many of the great Yogis who followed Yogananda over from India, who tried to introduce Hatha Yoga to the West, like Swami Sivananda and even my Guru Bishnu Ghosh, gave up because they saw the western body was not made to do many of the Postures the way they had been taught for centuries in India.  A few who learned from them, and others who came, then changed the Yoga to try to fit the western body and way of life, and compromised the primary principles of Hatha Yoga Asana.  My Guru recognized and saw in the system I created, the way Yoga could be successfully taught in the West and the rest of the world on a wide scale.  If you try to fit Yoga into junkyard bodies,...
