Our deep commitment towards the great works of the past does not contradict with the modern approach to yoga. On the contrary, we highly honor modern authors, researchers, scholars, masters who move the understanding of traditional hatha yoga even further through their extensive studies, and encourage our students to be creative in their practice of yoga as long as the correct understanding of its genuine goals is preserved.
