Ben Anderson

I received this email from Ben Anderson. I believe it to be a scam. I have received two similar
emails in the past who contacted me through the Yoga Alliance website both were scams.
Has anyone else gotten this email?

I am very sorry to reply you late. I traveled to another city for my business.I want to
inquire about booking of private yoga class for my two sons who are amateur footballers here
in Poland.I will be on long vacation in Canada from 23rd of January to March 10th
2011. And during my vacation i would want my two sons Dennis 18,and Lukas 20 to attend your
yoga class to undergo a basic training and exercise program which emphasizes the balanced
development of the body through core strength, flexibility and awareness in order to support
efficient graceful movement prior to their resumption of trial at two clubs they want to
join.The training is meant to be a basic foundation program in yoga and they should be able
to learn basic exercises, body movements, workouts and techniques such as Centering,Control,
Flow, Breath, Precision and Concentration.Please tell me little more about yourself,how long
have you been doing yoga? and would you be able to provide private

Yoga Alliance Scam

Has anyone else gotten this email from this person. I have received two other emails from
different names over the past year who said they found me through Yoga Alliance.
Both of the others have been scams.

I got your email from www i will like to make enquires about your private yoga classes.

Karma Yoga

Karma Yoga, selfless service to others. What do you think
that looks like? Selfless service.

Service to others is not like helping or fixing. Fixing takes away
someone’s power because you do the work for them. Helping can
be on the verge of taking away someone’s power if you are ‘helping’
them do something YOU want them to do, not what they want to do.

Service is doing something for someone that they want, it has nothing
at all to do with you. And selfless simply means involving less self in
the process.

Do you think this happens very much anymore….selfless service?


If you had to think about how much energy you have every
day and had to pick a number between 1 and 10 (10 being great
gobs of energy and 1 being tired all the time) what would that
number be?

It has been my experience the practice of Yoga is brilliant as it
builds energy within the body. I am talking about the time honored
tradition of Yoga not our western version of Yoga. They are two
very different practices.
