Before becoming a teacher there, this dude was lucky (and, presumably, rich) enough to spend an enviable amount of time at Kripalu in the Berkshires - one of my dream destinations - while on hiatus from his day job as a psychotherapist. His clinical perspective brings a degree of practical perspective to an intensive spiritual practice, and I appreciate his frequent moments of skeptical candor. Still and all, it's sometimes difficult to stay with the stories he tells of psychological suffering and redemption through yoga without rolling your eyes at the embarrassment of entitlement implicit in even being at Kripalu in the first place.
