What is yoga anyway, and why do we keep doing it?

Is yoga a stretchy kid above doing asana-breakdancing ?  The ordinary folks below doing the rhumba in the supermarket?  The New Jersey nonogenarian and yoga teacher further down who studied with two of the most influential yogis in history?  A rabbi pondering how etymology connects his tradition with yoga?  A guru puzzlingly hyping yoga mats bearing his name or announcing a strategic alliance with a vitamin company?

It’s interesting to think about the light this sheds on our own practice of yoga, and what we can learn from each of these yogis.

What do we South Shore yogis and -ginis share with these people?
