As a yoga enthusiast and teacher I've been accused on more than one occasion of eating, sleeping, and breathing yoga. Is there truth to that? Some, I suppose. Of course yoga is everywhere, so it's possible that it's pervading your consciousness through osmosis. Here's a little example of my week, which has been chock full o' yoga...
Yoga mat as home decor -- If you have a yoga mat or two lying around and you have a creative flair for decorating, why try this DIY project -- Yoga Mat Wallcovering .
Lulu love -- It's been over 5 years but I finally cracked -- I bought some new Lululemon clothes. I suppose the long time in between Lulu purchases makes the high prices a bit easier to take (I suppose if you average the cost of my last shopping spree 5 and some odd years ago, the per month cost is probably less than most people spend on lattes in a month). Yes, I wince when I put a pair of $98 pants in my shopping cart, but the fit and quality of the clothes eliminates the pain and reminds me of why I heart Lululemon. Looks like I'm not the only one . My latest splurges include: Fast in Flight Bag , Renew Dirt Dress Organic , Everyday Yoga Jacket , Dance Studio Pant , Relaxed Fit Pant , and the Fouette Tank . See you in another 5 Lulu!
Yogi bear -- Is there nothing that makes us laugh more (and forward pictures/links to our friends) than pictures of animals doing yoga? I, apparently, am not immune to the allure. This week's animal doing yoga du jour -- bears in a Finnish zoo. Here's a picture for you -- perfect for forwarding to your animal-loving friends. If you want more than a picture, here's the un-bear-ably cute sight on video . Awwwwwwwww.
My week started off with a little something that reminded me of the music clubs of the 80s (you know the ones where you would pay a penny for a bunch of music and then receive monthly shipments for a small fee thereafter). Yoga Journal, in an attempt to push their new DVD series, send out unsuspecting subscribers such as myself a DVD in the mail. Nope, I didn't request it. Now I have to stick it back in the postage paid envelope and send the thing back because I don't want it. Didn't ask for it. Don't want it.
If the folks over at Yoga Journal were hoping that I would follow the Law of Reciprocity and pay for something after they give me a freebie, they are wrong. Boo hiss, Yoga Journal. You just spent who knows how much on postage and materials in the hope that your subscribers are what -- too lazy to send it back to as no to receive an automatic shipment every month that they have to pay for? I'm becoming more disenchanted with Yoga Journal every day. I think it's time to throw the subscription renewal letter in the trash.
So there you have it -- a week of yoga happenings. I don't know if I eat, sleep, and breathe yoga but it sure does play a pretty prominent role in my life. I wouldn't say that's a bad thing...
