I was recently engaged in a discussion with another teacher. We were talking about practicing yoga and the other person said: “Everyone will ultimately end up where they should be and have their two feet in one boat.” The assertion was that an effective yoga practice requires you to commit to a particular style of yoga and stick with it.
