I am headed to a weekend yoga study with a highly skilled, famous yoga teacher. A yoga teacher star. The class is in a few weeks and I am giddy to be going, I have watched videos this teacher made and webinars. I think I will learn a whole whole lot.
But today I looked on the part of the description of the class that says "required reading". I noticed there was quite a bit of it. And then I noticed all the books were written by the teacher of the class.
Okay. So I looked on Amazon and found they were not for sale there. So I went back to the site where the class required reading was listed and followed the website listed for the books. It turned out to be the teacher's own website. Okay.
So I see that to buy all these books that are not just recommended, but required reading for this class will come up to over a hundred dollars. Wow. Okay.
So since I have waited, I know I need to get them shipped sorta fast to read them in time for class. I look and the only shipping available is two day shipping, which is pretty pricey. Wow.
I am looking forward to the class and looking forward to the read. I think I will learn a lot. But now part of me feels... Maybe used? I don't know. It feels like the teacher is using the class as an avenue to sell books. I would not mind if it were one book. Or even two. But four books? All the books on the website for sale by this author/ teacher? I don't know.
