21st Century Yoga book review

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Two yogini bloggers Carol Horton of http://www.thinkbodyelectric.com/ and Roseanne Harvey
Of http://www.itsallyogababy.com/came together to compile, edit and publish a book of essays. The topics range from yoga, cultural, politics. It was a fascinating read personally I always enjoyed hearing about some one own yoga experience because each one is unique and beautiful like the person and practice. In fact my favorite question to ask a yogi I just met is how did you find yoga. I feel we often get so caught up in what is yoga and the right way to do it that we forget journey and what we can learn from each other. Yoga has influenced my life personally to professionally. It has help create me as a woman, soon to be teacher writer and activist. Yoga is plain and simple an everlasting amazing journey. Check out the book at http://www.amazon.com/21st-Century-Yoga-Politics-Practice/dp/0615617603/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1359075678&sr=1-1&keywords=21st+century+yoga

my new year resolution

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

I would define the year 2012 as a whirlwind – it just went by so fast. Many events took place in my life from turning forty, to attending a yoga retreat at Omega in New York to having heart surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Now that I have healed and recovered from the surgery it is time to look forward to the New Year with my resolutions in hand. As a devoted yogini, I have loved sharing my practice through writing about my experiences. I decided to find another way to share my yoga passion by becoming a chair yoga teacher. It is my goal to help people with physical limitations such as myself enjoy the many benefits of a yoga practice. I have enrolled in an online course conducted over Skype to receive my certification as a
Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga teacher. The course will teach me how to adapt yoga poses to be done in a chair. I will also be learning how teach meditation, and breathing techniques and exercises.
In my view, yoga is a very worthwhile practice for the mind and body, as it can truly enrich your life. My goal is to share this gift with everyone and help enjoy the benefits that I have received from my own yoga practice. I wish everyone a very Happy New Year filled with love, peace and happiness.
