I enjoyed listening to this episode and many aspects resonated with me. I did come away slightly with the feeling though, and this may be misinterpretation on my part, that Ade Beecham was critical of ashtanha yoga because it was repetitive and therefore not as embodied as other styles. But I also wondered how much of this was sue to his type a personality? I’m sure there are many ashtanga devotees who have not needed replacement hips. My own mother had a replacement hip and there was no repetitive practice to blame. Maybe it’s just bad luck and nothing to do with yoga, or rather asana movement practice
