  • 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

Thanks for posting this, I'm in a similar place, struggling (hmm, not a struggle... wrestling!) with this myself. I keep trying to think of the Erich Schiffman: Do it so it feels good. I also focus on those athletes who are 20 years older than I am, who are doing what I want to be doing when I'm that age. THAT's my goal, not to compete with the serious age groupers. It's hard for me to remember that when I want to do it all NOW!

On the pain front--I have to keep up with massage if I don't want to hurt. Yoga alone doesn't do it for me. My foam roller, various balls and massage stick are vital. And, I still slack on them, then complain about the stiffness. I need to get more Jill Miller into my life!
