  • Richard Freeman: Yoga Chants

    Richard Freeman: Yoga Chants
    Richard Freeman Chants - its a 2 cd set. The first CD is instructional, he explains some of the history and technique, and you sing along by repeating first a word, then a line, of each chant. I think there are 3-4 chants he teaches in this way -including the ashtanga invocation, which I've always liked. He explains things very clearly. The second cd is him chanting and playing the harmonium. He has a good voice, not a great voice, but there is something incredibly soothing about listening to him. -Jane

  • Cindy Dollar: Yoga Your Way : Customizing Your Home Practice

    Cindy Dollar: Yoga Your Way : Customizing Your Home Practice
    This is a great book for home practice. It's spiral bound and the pages are split so that on the left the pages are practice sequences and on the right each page is one of 44 asanas. The 31 practice sequences range from 10 to 90 minutes. On the back of each asana page are several modifications with various props. The author is an Iyengar teacher and the instructions are very detailed. What I like most about it is that the variety of sequences will prevent me from doing the same practice all the time which is what usually happens when I do yoga on my own. -Danielle

This entry really resonates. I just got back into practicing yoga regularly,so have found myself much more aware of my body and where I am more sore or less flexible. Journaling these ailments or improvements can only help!


Love your sketches, I make beautiful handbound journals you may want to invest in one for your gorgeous drawings


"Some of us have kept journals or sketchbooks since long before we began our yoga practices, then found those lifelong habits supporting our yoga experience."

I've kept a journal for a long time for all sorts of things. I have often wondered what to do with so many volumes. Blogging has helped me find new spaces! I'm NOT a certified yoga instructor. I just have a discipline for writing, but lately I've found that I've been blogging about yoga asanas and how it relates to my musicianship.


This is great info to know.

This is a beautiful post about insightful, yogic journaling. The reproduced pages from your journals are AMAZING. I've never done that kind of drawing, but am going to give it a shot. Thanks so much. I will link to this and to the site. You take yoga deeper - to that centerless center connecting us to the ocean of all beings.


Carolyn, I connected with your post to the point of feileng emotional. What you wrote about connecting to your art journal really got to me because that is the way I feel about my art. I escape into my art room and all of the stress from the day disappears. I'm also intrigued by your blog because one of my new joys is mixed media. I will pour over your posts and learn from you. Thanks for sharing your talents!
