In August of 2011, my friend Ali and I shot a little video at a beautiful retreat space in Nosara, Costa Rica called the Costa Rica Yoga Spa. I had no idea that in the course of just over one year it would have received nearly 40,000 views on Youtube — 4 times more than my most popular yoga video has in 3 years! I immediately wondered why, and then I found out that Dr. Oz had promoted it on his show. To give us a little credit, though, it was also a very well-received video. So far it’s received 177 likes, and only 4 dislikes! And here are just some of the encouraging comments that have been made:
~ “Well finally someone is doing the 5 Rites properly – slowly as they should be – thank you – I got my original video here in Australia – taught by two ladies at Byron Bay in 1992 & from what I instinctually feel, the exercises need to be done very slowly. The 4th & 5th postures were done more slowly – which I prefer. However, now with your link I can forward to friends – more true to the way. Excellent thank you.”
~ Sweet video!!! great breakdown of the sequences, keep up the great work.
~ “The best video on the Tibetan 5 Rites I’ve seen so far. So beautifully & clearly demonstrated :)”
~ “Best video of these.”
