Vanessa Grigoriadis reports on the latest in the Bikram yoga copyright wars. From the article—
Dana Flynn (owner of the Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York): "Bikram is a bit of a pirate."
Bikram Choudhury (referring to the owners of the studio where I practice, whom he sued): "They are on the street today. They are closing their school. They cannot say my name. She cannot teach my yoga anymore, because she lost her license."
While I can't debunk the first quote I can debunk part of the second, having just come from an excellent class taught by Kim Morrison, the "she" in question. And no, it wasn't taught in the street but in their comfortable studio, which seems to be doing just fine.
