Unfortunately the video that this article is based on has been removed, but regardless Tosca was stating that KPJ had the right to adjust the students in the manner depicted in the video, and is certainly not justifying other unethical sexual behavior that was not seen in this video. Yes, this is a complex and multi-layered topic and this blog post was certainly not intended to address all of the nuances around physical touch, consent and sexuality.

Comment on Yoga and the Ethics of Touch: The Guru’s Blessing by Mado http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/yoga-blog/yoga-and-the-ethics-of-touch-the-gurus-blessing/#comment-10137 Fri, 23 Sep 2016 19:02:23 +0000 http://www.yogabasics.com/?p=3719#comment-10137 I’m surprised by such a careless article from a psychologist in training.

First, to make the assertion that KPJ was ‘within his rights’ to touch students negates the experience of those students he touched who have come out against it. (Anneke Lucas for one)

The last sentence to include ‘skimpy attire’ in a list of the causes of unethical sexual behavior smacks of victim blaming in an almost absurd nod to all that we have learned about rape culture in the past decade.

Maybe this topic is just to big for a blog post, but I’m disappointed by the insensitive approach.
