Recently, we saw a job posting for a yoga clothing retailer titled "Community Guru." The description said the employee's duties would be essentially to build brand awareness, network, and connect people to their stores to drive retail.
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
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
Andrea Olsen: Bodystories: A Guide To Experiential Anatomy
This book is the most accesible of all the more touchy-feely anatomy books I have - daily exercises of body exploration. -Lianne
