"All of these different myths have deeper sort of morals, or meanings that we can gain wisdom and knowledge from and really are talking about yoga. It's teaching us about yoga."- Harmony Lichty I did a degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies. They're two separate degrees: one in Philosophy and one in Religious Studies.
"Think of this practice in terms of months and years. This is what I used to tell people. Some people listen, some people not, but then I realized no it's not even months and years it's like first decade, second decade." - Jeff Lichty If you practice Ashtanga then you want to see this interview.

(As of March 27th there were only 47 Certified teachers in the world and only 17 of those are women) it goes something like this. You practice . Somewhere around 10 -15 years in most cases. You make multiple trips to KPJAYI in Mysore so Sharath can see you practice.
