Over the past month, I've had the opportunity to sub for a few of the city's finest ashtanga vinyasa yoga instructors: Mary Klonowski, Patricia Hyland and Bill Shapleigh.

From the looks of their students, they are doing a great job in the trenches, day after day, spreading the practice (as are other long-time fortysomething teachers Amy Beth Treciokas, Lisa Hill, and Terri Smith; all but Terri first learned ashtanga from Suddha Weixler and/or his direct students).

The famous teachers may come to town and get all the accolades.

But these are the teachers doing the real work, laying the foundation.

It's wonderful to see the practice flourish....

...especially in a city whose asthanga teachers are all (some proudly) unauthorized.
