Briohny Smyth: in her own element. {Other videos}

“…And most importantly, breathe.”

Some defend it, some appreciate it, some are “triggered” by it. I found it simply beautiful—powerful.

Whatever our view, the Equinox Yoga video has done more to export yoga into the mainstream than any yoga practice demonstration in history.

Still, I thought it interesting, happening across these other videos when I used google “Briohny yoga” to spellcheck Briohny’s name…to see her in a more simple, personal, and less commercial context.

Because, whatever our view, let’s remember Briohny is human, and our judgment (right or wrong, or more likely a bit of both) shouldn’t enable us to forget that there’s a feeling human behind our comments and arguments.

Writing from the Yoga Journal Conference in San Francisco, where many intelligent, respectful discussions continue. It’s the buzz of the conference. ~ Waylon, ed.


New: how to do those handstands in the Equinox video: “learning to fall out of it is a good way to get over the fear.”

Bonus! She’s been a star for years:
