"...Menuhin was an israeli and an urbane European who financed Iyengar's teaching trips to London (a yoga now different from Krishnamacharya's as he had deleted the vinyasa form of jumping). Iyengar has been quoted in Elisabeth Kadetsky's book, First There is a Mountain, as saying that the jumping 'makes your mind like a monkey'. Richard Freeman refutes this and says that Iyengar wasn't jumping smoothly enough. Hanuman, Rama's monkey general, had the strength to jump with lightness across the ocean even holding the island of Sri Lanka on his fingertips."
