  • 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

SO glad you wrote this. I had wondered mleysf some time back about this very question. My partner is not a self-identified yogi, but she does humor me by attending classes once in a while I worried as I went slightly deeper into some yogic philosophy because I was trying to share my experience with someone who wasn't all that interested in having the same experience.I've learned to be satisfied with whatever she chooses to take in from the conversations we have or the philosophy I spew. After all, part of being yogi' and what had such a spiritual impact on me in the first place was that there were no defined rules about what you HAD to believe or practice. Nobody was imposing their views on me; they offered up information if I asked.Do I sometimes wish my sig other was more interested? sure. But she wishes I got more excited about the Food Network and cooking shows. *shrug* still love her anyway
