Imagine the whole spectrum of education had been taken over by sports teachers who declared gymnastics to be the only meaningful thing to learn. That’s what they are good at, all the other stuff is too difficult, so it’s just theory, right? Welcome to “modern” Yoga. Ignorance or narrow-mindedness are no signs of good practice or teaching.
All components of Yoga practice need each other. The purpose of Asana is fulfilled in providing a stable foundation for controlling the nervous system and the senses. Controlled senses allow you to concentrate the mind. Only a concentrated mind can be cultivated. This is where Yoga begins.
The most important quality of all practices is adhering to an ethical system, all the time, without exception. This is said to be the “great yogic vow” (mahavratam), according to the scriptures of Yoga. Selfish, narcissistic, greedy or abusive teacher personalities indicate the complete absence of Yoga.

The most important tool for students and teachers alike is the whole spectrum of education. Let’s do our homework so we won’t be fooled :)
