A look at how Ashtanga was viewed/presented 20 years ago
Interesting Yoga Journal article by senior editor Anne Cushman on Ashtanga in the 1995 January/February edition of Yoga Journal. This starts off as being about Power Yoga but quickly moves to the roots of power yoga in Ashtanga with input from David Williams, Tim Miller (The Alchemy of Ashtanga), Richard Freeman and on the final page Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty on 'Changing the series' ( or not). There's also a nice first hand report of visiting Mysore back in '95 by Beverly Fredericks

Also this article from 1986 which has a fuller version of the Yoga Korunta story.

Anyone know of an earlier extended article on Ashtanga?
