Serious Ashtanga practitioners are practicing every day, twice each day, for many hours each day. Just like someone who only comes to the Sunday feast once each week is not going to make as much progress as someone who practices Krishna Consciousness strictly every day, and follows the complete program, you can’t give a vague example of practicing Ashtanga once a week for 1-2 hours, as the complete picture of all Ashtanga practitioners. There are many different degrees of practitioners. You can’t just lump them all into one example and say this is how things are.
The idea that the women and men who a practicing Ashtanga-yoga can all be compared to Ajamil and the prostitute is naive and a misconception which comes from viewing things from the outside, with little actual information about how things really are.
I find the Ashtanga practitioners whom I associate with to be very serious about yoga and advancing in spiritual life. Unfortunately they are missing Bhakti-yoga. There are very few devotees coming to explain deep philosophical ideas, from the Vaishnava prospective.
This is what is needed.
