• Elephant Journal Interview | Bernadette Birney: It's about yoga (sort of)

    Elephant Journal Interview

     Here’s a snippet of the interview I gave with Elephant journal writer, Melissa Smith, last night:

    “The turbulent situation in Anusara threw us together. Before resigning, many of us worked closely to try to help John [Friend] make the right choices so the community could heal its wounds. After resigning, we reached out to one another for support. The healing naturally evolved into us wanting to reconnect to and help heal our community, and to include others in a vision of a post-Anusara future.”

      Thank you.

      • Thanks for connecting. There has not yet been any policy set–about anything!–but please know I will absolutely be advocating for it. xo
