A picture of some of my older yoga books…it’s hard to stack up Kindle yoga books…It’s been quite a long time since I last posted about the yoga-related books I’ve been reading. There’s no doubt that my reading habits have certainly shifted the last few years. I used to always have a book on its way […]
I’m sure most of us enjoy a little spontaneity in our yoga practice, but there’s also a lot to be said for showing up to a yoga class with a prepared teacher that puts on a smooth-flowing class. I do most of my yoga at home, but I don’t have many worse yoga pet peeves […]
After you’ve practiced yoga for a while it dawns on you that not all yoga mats are created equal. Most beginning yogis scoff at dropping a hundred-plus bucks on a yoga mat, but if you stick with the practice you’ll eventually begin to collect mats like they’re tupperware and you may end up with a […]
5/5 stars. Most yogis tend to find themselves on a never ending quest to find an environmentally-friendly water bottle that’s stylish, easy to use, doesn’t leak all over, and is simple to clean.

My favorite yoga gear company, Manduka, recently partnered with yoga teacher and founder of Anusara Yoga, John Friend, to create its first ever-cobranded line of yoga gear. Since I think this is a great step forward in providing high-quality, innovative yoga gear, I wanted to share a few highlights from the recent press release to […]
Living on a semi-tropical island pretty much means sandals and flip-flops are a staple of life. Avid yogis also appreciate the simplicity of sandals since they make jumping onto the yoga mat that much easier. One thing I’ve discovered from all my sandal wearing though is that not all sandals are created equally. I’m definitely […]
