The Daily News follows up with both parties from this week's yoga battle. Bikram Yoga Manhattan founder Raffael Pacitti says he doesn't regret sending out a mail blast accusing Yoga to the People's Greg Gumucio of being a fraud who pushes legitimate Bikram studios out of business. As for Gumucio, he doesn't exactly sound contrite: "We do offer the same kind of yoga at a much cheaper rate, and we're obviously doing a really good job," he said. "It makes it very convenient to him to blame us." [NYDN; Previously]
