I was extremely saddened last night to hear of the passing of Thom Birch, pioneering athlete and Yoga teacher. According to this obit from his alma mater, The University of Houston, he died on Thursday, November 9th after suffering a heart attack. Thom and his wife Beryl were the first to introduce the practice of Astanga yoga to thousands of people, through their programs “The Hard and the Soft” and “Power Yoga.”
Please feel free to use the comments feature of this blog to post any remembrances of Thom you’d like to share, and I’ll be sure to pass them along to Beryl.
