    As part of the collective that assembles the music for BLACK YO)))GA, I can assure you that it has absolutely nothing to do with "blaring death metal".

    The more I think about it, this is actually quite insulting ("hilarious versions"... did you really just say that?) and what I find to be a very narrow minded & ignorant viewpoint. You talk about yoga being an "integral part of Hindu culture and religion, more like a religious ritual for the body"... what is it you think we do?

    My wife teaches more traditional yoga classes as well, but BLACK YO)))GA is what we've created for us, and it appeals to a lot of people who would never have done it otherwise. It HAS become our community to save ourselves from disillusionment. And I can tell you, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that it saved my life when I needed it most.
