Giving the (more) business to yoga

Following up on my blog entry about the Wall Street Journal article on yoga and high finance, there was an angle that I did not notice initially. The Columbia Journalism Review calls Tina Gaudoin and the WSJ to task for quoting a teacher at a yoga studio she owns in London. Gaudin is a new editor at the WSJ, brought in from UK. The Gawker also noted the less than transparent relationship between Gaudoin and the yoga studio. I wonder if Patanjali had anything to say about this kind of ethical complication on the road to samadhi.

There was recently an article in BusinessWeek about MBA students turning to yoga to relieve the stress. More than a few business schools (Chicago, Northwestern, MIT and Harvard) offer yoga classes as part of their wellness programs.
