Happening Yoga places in the SF Bay Area ...
In talking with an old Reed friend this morning,
he mentioned a number of yoga places in the SF Bay Area that he enjoys ...
Here are some more that I came across / know of ...
Quick fix yoga videos ...
(which I added to WUaS's Yoga wiki subject page -
And here's Harbin's yoga page - http://www.harbin.org/yoga.htm

Not only are all of their web sites interesting from an anthropology of yoga on the web in the SF Bay Area perspective, but like Reed College Sociology professor, John Pock, who once suggested (in a Sociology of Religion course in the early 1980s) visiting churches on Sunday mornings to do sociological field work of the variety of religious experience / churches in Portland in the mid-'80s, it would be interesting to do something similar learning-wise in visiting these yoga studios, - and also to network and grow yoga community with them.
Also it's just an interesting glimpse into yoga these days in the SF Bay Area ...
As a very loose sociological interpretation, I think yoga (all of these yogis above have taught in California) these days offers practices for developing a healthy bodymind through asana, a community, culture, and meaning for practitioners, a language, set of narratives, a discourse and focus, identity, as well as a kind of sensible coping strategy for dealing with life, modernity and cities. Yoga also offers a positive vision of health and connectedness, as well as a means to change one's own neurophysiology, physically, in the context of such discourses.
I'm also curious what's happening at the Fremont Hindu Temple in the South Bay in terms of yoga.
Here's my yoga page - http://scottmacleod.com/yoga.htm - with its somewhat unique, beginning-focus on questions of evolutionary biology, and well as wondrous-ness, in this art.
... would love to attend a yoga course again with Angela and Victor on Lesvos, Greece ... soon-ish ...
