my life on the yoga D-list

I returned yesterday from my Level 2 Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy training in Vermont to find out that there was a glaring omission in Yoga Journal’s story about yoga blogs — me. And how did I find out that Yoga Journal neglected me? From my brother from a different mother, YogaDawg. So just like a…

my brother from a different mother

While I was at my final retreat for the Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Training at Spirit Rock in California, YogaDawg sent me this video saying “this one’s for you, couldn’t help but think about ya….” Thanks, Y Dawg, I LOVED IT! I also received another blog award from Grace over at Graceful Yoga, a lovely…

"hey, brother, can ya spare a yoga class pass?"

“Images from the Great Depression 2.0 – Yoga and Starbucks for the Unemployed” From YogaDawg, of course. And be sure to read this. Happy Spring, y’all. Support your local yoga teacher.addthis_pub = ‘yogagal60510’;

every picture tells a story

Thanks, YogaDawg! and this is why I am not a yoga superstar like Shiva Rea, Seanne Corn, et. al. That pup looks drugged. Have you ever seen such a lifeless puppy? And I hope Ms. Doga did not get that puppy from a pet store — pet stores buy puppies from puppy mills! Please feed…

the retreat, part 2: Yoga Dawg goes legit!

I have finally found some time to write a a bit about my second 10 day retreat for my Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation training at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California. You can read about the first retreat in October, 2007 here. We had the same teachers from last year except for Stephen Cope…

(Please read Getting Back to Yoga, Part 1 and Part 2 in their entirety before reading this post.) This post is excerpts from an email I received from a regular reader who is also a yoga teacher. She gave me permission to use it, with edits. she asked me to disguise her words because she…

arf-arf! recommended by da’ Dawg…

YogaDawg that is! woo-hoo, gettin’ down with the Dawg! I received an email from the Dawg himself telling me that he picked this blog as a “YogaDawg recommended blog”… I first wrote about YogaDawg back in January and again in October when he posted his video bio. Dawg’s video would make Bikram fall off his…

who is YogaDawg?

One of my favorite yoga sites is YogaDawg’s and the Dawg honors me occasionally by popping in to read this blog. He commented on my $49.99 yoga certification post so I thought I’d give him a shout-out. “Yoga Teacher Sub-classes: The Clueless These are new teachers who have graduated from one of the many teacher…

my third eye itches…

…I couldn’t have said it better myself… take a break from my India travelog and check out the YogaDawg website…it’s hilarious! I’ve always thought that too many yogis take themselves WAY too seriously…is anyone else sick of seeing Shiva Rea’s hair blowing in the wind? Shiva, honey — I moved like you LONG before you…
