Yoga related updates (what else would you expect?)

Hi internet land!
How has your week been? Things are good her in Georgia. The weather is changing and fall is really upon us. I love Fall!
Some updates:
I received my new Jade Harmony Travel Yoga Mat! I won it by entering a Yoga Joke Contest.
My joke was: Why couldn't the yogi vaccum his carpet? He lost all his attachments!
Silly I know but it got a few laughs and I ended up with a brand new nice lovely mat. I mean for a yogi a new mat is exciting!
I've had my previous Jade mat for about 3 years. I was told by a good friend that the quality was great. She was right. It is the ONLY mat that takes the ware and tear of an Ashtanga/Vinyasa practice (for me anyway)
Here we are:


Also, tomorrow evening from 7-9:30 is the Grand Opening of Lotus Yoga & Meditation.
The only yoga & meditation in Newnan...and in the surrounding area to my knowledge.
It is a cute place with great charm. I will be teaching a few beginner vinyasa classes.
There are 3 other yoga teachers and I hope the community embraces the center!

Check out the cute cute website: http://www.lotusnewnan.com/
Okay- I am off my lunch break now. Back to work.

Hi,
Yoga is beneficial for the health in ways that modern science is just beginning to understand. Even though it has beenapplied with therapeutic intention for thousand of years, Yoga Therapy is only just now emerging as a discipline initself.
More health care practitioners are starting to include yogic techniques in their approach to healing -- andmore yoga teachers give a therapeutic intention to their teaching. People who have never tried yoga before are startingto consider including Yoga in their treatment plan.
As science begins to document the importance of understanding the interrelation of all existing things, it looks to Yogawith an intrigued eye, for Yoga speaks Unity in every word. As yoga techniques are researched and new data is gathered,it becomes easier for science and the medical establishment to understand and accept the benefits of Yoga Therapy.Yet there is still not one consensual definition of the discipline.
In order to arrive to an adequate definition and tocome up with proper standards for Yoga Therapy, it is crucial at this early stage to properly address some delicateprofessional and ethical issues. At the same time it is important to educatethegeneralpublic about Yoga Therapy'sbenefits and careful use.
so this article will really helpful to me..
