RIP BKS. Thanks for notifying me Naprapa. A great man whose life's work I am deeply grateful for - may he rest and live on in mind.

Just started reading Guru Iyengar's Light on yoga, its amazing I decided to read it while walking around the park earlier. It is amazing to me how the universe works, it mentions the Bhagavad Gita several times which coincidently was given to me earlier this year by a vedic monk. Pretty Amazing =)

Dear Yogis, I am currently in Mysore, India (practicing with Sheshadri) and I wonder if anyone of you is here also? :)

Hey Raw Yogis,  I've just set up a new youtube channel and web site    rawandcookedvegan.com   and I want to interview as many vegans as I can.  I want to go into your bio and your transition and what you're doing now.  Contact me via 30Bad or via     rawandcookedvegan@gmail.com     it doesn't matter how long you've been raw or vegan, I just want to get the info up there and your experience will help others.  We'll do skype videos.  Let me know and thank you all for this revolution,   Paul

Beautiful stuff.  That's great she learned on her own, just listen to your body.  What you want to explore is muscular activation while you are stretching.  It is often thought that yoga is passive stretching but over time this approach can screw up ligaments.  Learn to have the muscles gently activated while you are stretching them.

Paul, thank you, I will try Rodney Yee, thank you for your recommendation! On of my friend went to India and he took a video of one girl in the beach. She was practicing a yoga, and didnt mind somebody make a movie. He uploaded this video to youtube and many people found her. She is russian girl. I contacted her and found that she learn yoga at home, she practiced alone at home with different kind of videos. This is very inspired me, I thought its not possible without a teacher to do yoga ;) This is a video of her in the beach: http://youtu.be/YOkt9tQVvWQ

Tonya,  Try Rodney Yee.  He has some AM and PM yoga dvds that are very accessible.  He comes from an Iyengar background but works the poses into a nice flow.  He used to be a Ballet dancer and I think that influences his approach.  He's gone a bit crazy on the marketing but he does put out some good stuff.  Another excellent book which doesn't go into poses so much but gives a brilliant view of how to approach yoga is,  Awakening the Spine by Vanda Scaravelli.  Have fun in Japan and don't worry about doing your own practice.  Just get on the mat and start exploring.

Fen, thank you for your reply, yes, I can find some english classes in Tokyo, but all of them are far away from me (Tokyo is very big city), and I am very busy with my raw food classes and family (kindergarten here is until 2pm). Almost classes are in the evening, and I have free time only until afternoon. So my situation is not easy, I tried to find something close and nice. Also visited and tried  many japanese studios in Tokyo, yes, I can understand and follow, but they never speak about yoga, its like exercises, almost teachers are not even vegetarians, so yoga is good business here. I am looking for "real" teacher, so maybe DVD is the best for me now. :) Thank you very much!
