Happy Friday Yogis.
I hope it has been a good week for you. Mine has had its share of ups and downs, including a most unfortunate auto accident. Now I get to practice my own best advice. Breathe, rest, ice, careful alignment and good posture. I guess the positive is that as a result of the accident, others around me, are being more careful in their own driving practices. My husband is convinced that as a result of my accident, he was saved from having one himself, as he was now being more present and cautious at the wheel.
Students in my classes at River Tree Yoga and Village Green Yoga continue to inspire me. This week I was honored by a guest at Tree House Point/River Tree Yoga who said her practice with me on Monday was the best addition to an already perfect vacation. I figure that is a good thing, seeing as the next part of her vacation was going to need some modification – no she can not go to Mount Rainer.
I just came upon this book list from an article published on YogaJournal.Com. Many of my students ask me for my recommendations on what to read. I think this article does a remarkable job of listing and describing some of the best resources in the yoga book world. This is by no means comprehensive and some of my favorites are not listed, but it is a good start.
One more thing. Here is a beautiful video of Vladimir Horwitz playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto #23. It is fun, it is inspiring, and heart warming. I must say that in many ways this man is a true yogi. He is so present, skillful, learned, humble and joyful. Enjoy!
Happy Weekend Yogis
