The Digital Yoga Curator

The Digital Yoga Curator

Like most people, I wear many hats. Hats relating to being a home manager, wife, yoga teacher, community volunteer, and so forth. Just today I became aware of a hat that I put on almost every day but have been overlooking. It’s time to lay claim to the title of yoga curator. You might well ask what I do as a yoga curator. Well, I spend part of my morning reading the news, perusing blog posts, googling yoga information, listening to podcasts, and communicating through Facebook.

40 Years Later: Remembering My Yoga Start

40 Years Later: Remembering My Yoga Start

 

The global community of writers is growing by leaps and bounds because of the Internet and its darling child, social media. Everyone has a book in ’em, as they say, or an article, or at least a post.
I declared myself a writer in 1996 when I received an advance from Simon and Schuster Publishers to write Teach Yourself Yoga. I’d been journal writing from when I was a mere sprout, but with the launch of the book, I became a Published Author. […]

Sharing or Shmoozing?

I’m taking a little break from the 196 threads of Patanjali’s sutra tapestry, of which to date I’ve teased out forty-one.
The spirit of this particular post is all about caring, sharing, and networking. Have you noticed that’s what makes the world go ’round these days? I jumped on this bandwagon some time ago in becoming a blogger. […]

Yoga Conference – Don't Miss!

Yoga Conference – Don't Miss!

 Here’s a heads-up for you, if you enjoy the experience of learning and sharing in community with your fellow yoga teachers. Yoga Australia is presenting a conference in Sydney April 28-29 with a great line-up of speakers and workshop presenters. I know that in the life of a yoga teacher, sometimes the expenses of insurance and keeping up with professional development can be financially taxing. But, until the end of March, you can save about $50 by being an early bird. I’ve heard that there are already 150 enrolees, so the conference promises to be well-subscribed and exciting. […]

N.Y.Times Yoga Talk About Sex

N.Y.Times Yoga Talk About Sex

Maybe it had to happen. Yoga has been on such a great roll. In recent weeks, though, the N.Y.Times has published a couple of articles, both by the same writer, that have stirred the opinions, angst, and ire of worldwide yogis.
The first yoga article by William Broad added promotional currency to his newly-ly published book, The Science of Yoga: The Risks and the Rewards. The piece was titled “How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body.” There was a storm of activity on blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and on the New York newspaper’s on-line forum. […]

There’s been trouble in the yoga world. First with Lululemon, the swish yoga gear outfitters. Then along came the stories of how yoga can wreck your body in the NY Times. […]

Not to Be Missed

Not to Be Missed

I’d like to give a plug to the very deserving work of Yoga Australia, and encourage you to meet an extraordinary person who will be presenting YA’s conference in April.
Yoga Australia, formerly the Yoga Teachers Association of Australia, has done amazing work in this country to create a high standard of teaching for experienced and new teachers’ compliance. […]

Head Down: Bum Up

Head Down: Bum Up

We’ve had big rain storms this week on Mitchells Island, but there’s a much bigger storm going on out in the yoga world.
The brouhaha seems to stem from the December 2011 article in the N.Y.Times discussing how yoga might be responsible for injuring practitioners. The link to the article has been sent ’round the world thousands of times on the Internet, along with responses, counter-arguments, blog posts, and YouTube clips. […]
