- From James Brown
I don’t want to believe this. My wise and loving teacher and friend, Maty, has moved on.
My life didn’t really get started until I met her. This morning I learned that she died suddenly yesterday.
If you know me or have learned from me, you know the influence her teaching and her support had on my practice and my life.
I am in shock right now but wanted to get this out there for those of you who don’t know. Thank you, Maty Ezraty.
- From David Kim:
Losing a legend: I just received the incredibly sad & shocking news that Maty Ezraty, one of the most influential yogis of our era, suddenly passed away in Tokyo.
Maty was a sharp-eyed, incisive teacher who cut through the faux-spirituality that too often afflicts what is a profound practice of seeing clearly at every level.
Not everyone agreed with her methodology, but she had the vision and dedication to build a #yoga school that made yoga accessible to so many people, taking it from the hippie fringe into mainstream America —and eventually — world culture.
She had an incredible eye for talent and nurtured so many of our generation’s brightest lights. Her legacy indelibly shaped the evolution of yoga, always reminding us that yoga is a way of living with eyes wide open.
Rest In Peace, Maty 🙏🙏🙏
