Hi there, just to explain why I've been removing some of the categories you've added: I have made Category:Indian yoga teachers a sub-category of Category:Yoga teachers so anyone in the former is already in the latter, by dint of being grouped in the subcat. You ought not to add both cats to the article. See WP:CATDIFFUSE for a fuller explanation. Best wishes. Mutt Lunker (talk) 10:10, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying as I was trying to figure out how to do this. --Ewj001 (talk) 03:56, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

CC, I think you might want to take another look at the edit. It correctly diffused to a sub-category. Mutt Lunker (talk) 13:45, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
I goofed? The cats are indeed different, but actually they add up to the same thing (a yogi is one who practises (or maybe teaches) yoga...). But if you want to let it pass, that's fine with me. Chiswick Chap (talk) 14:14, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
That's a different matter. Leaving aside the validity of the category and sub-category, the edit diffusing from one to the other was correct.
"Yogi" and "yoga teacher" are not synonymous. In the west the former is often only used for teachers of repute but really means any practitioner (e.g. you could add Yehudi Menuhin as a yogi). That said, the latter term does imply the former, if not vice versa. Mutt Lunker (talk) 14:27, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying. I was in the process of editing (and correcting my edits) when I believe this issue was noted. --Ewj001 (talk) 04:12, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
