I try to refrain of pegging my blog entries to news articles, but this one is too intriguing to miss: Anusara’s John Friend had this huge profile, “Stretching the business of Yoga,” appear at an Indian website. The article is by Mimi Swartz of the NYT News Services, which leads me to believe that John will be appearing in the New York Times sometime this weekend. Normally, a internationally syndicated feature piece would not be as long as the NDTV.com article. Just as interesting as Friend being featured in an NY Times piece is that an Americian yoga figure should be featured so prominently in Indian media — and without being accused of stealing ancient wisdom for mercantile purposes.
Update: I was right: The New York Times Magazine (Sunday, July 25, 2010): “The Yoga Mogul.”
