Thanks Simon!

I hear you Jodi! I often take technology black-out days. I think technology is wonderful, but it needs to be balanced with other things like connection. Thanks for your comment.

Ouch Rebecca! I'm sorry to hear about your ankle. Hope you heal up quickly. And don't be too hard on yourself -- we ALL do it!

Hi Devora -- Many studios offer free classes in return for volunteer work, so don't be shy about asking. Please let me know how it goes.

It is a great book, Dr. D. I enjoyed it. It's hard to pick a favorite, as I enjoyed them all but I enjoyed the Art of Flourishing so much that I'm re-reading it.

Thanks for your kind words, J! Definitely kindred practitioners. I thoroughly enjoyed your recent article in the IAYT journal. Good stuff! I just added your blog to my blogroll. I know my readers will love it.
Glad you got a chuckle out of the post, Rebecca. I love that you used to walk down the hallway with your hands in namaste. I would have loved to see a co-worker break hand out in handstand in the conference room. Unfortunately, I didn't work with any yogis when I had a 9-5.
@Balancingontwofeet -- HA! Uh, oh, I'm corrupting you with my blog, eh? Have fun reading and procrastinating!
I'm glad you like the practice, Romney! I enjoy it for the same reasons -- the focus is on coordinating the body, breath, and mind rather than thinking and muscle memory.
Thanks for offering your opinion of Vega, Diana. I was going to try it, but the price just puts me off (I had the 7-day serving canister in my hand at Whole Foods the other day but I just couldn't bring myself to spend over $30 for it). I like that it seems to offer every kind of nutrient and super food that you'd ever need but the price seems ridiculously high to me. And your saying that it's hard to get down doesn't make me want to lay out the cash. Thanks for your comment!
Thanks for commenting Romney. I hear you on the supplements. I've gone from taking a bunch of them to taking none to only taking a few. Even though I eat a lot of natural foods, sometimes I feel the need to add a little extra. I'm not sure about all of the "you need this" marketing though.
Thanks for writing such an awesome (and important) series of articles, Chelsea! I'm so glad that you went from reading my blog to becoming featured on my blog -- very cool.
I'm glad the timing is right, Rebecca! I hear you on the sitting at a desk all day -- that'll definitely shorten the muscles and lead to pain. Try spending 5-10 minutes a day stretching your psoas, and I'll bet you'll feel a difference. Let me know how it goes.

@Maria -- you can use the nifty little search box on this site (on the left hand sidebar) to search for meditation and yoga holidays.
@Keishualove --guilt is no fun, right? It turns what should be a soothing practice into something more like a task on the to do list. Believe me, I know this from firsthand experience. I always say that there's no right way -- there's only your way. Thanks so much for your comment. Let me know if this perspective shift changes your practice.
@Molly -- thanks for your comment. The feminine comes more from the body rather than the head. Just think of the qualities of the feminine: receptivity, connection, nurturing, sensuality (using the 5 senses), fluidity/flow/resilience, multi-dimensional/non-linear. I would suggest adding elements to your practice that play on these qualities. It's more of a connection to your body rather than what's going on in your head. There might be play and/or movement involved. I would suggest approaching it with a spirit of experimentation. Try adding some of these qualities into your practice and see what, if anything, shifts for you. Try it on for size. I hope this was helpful.
Powerful, powerful story David! Thank you so much for sharing!

Thanks for sharing Abbie! While I've never been to India, I've heard that very same thing. Even though it's a common, ordinary greeting in Hindi, I like to use it a bit differently, which works since it's not so common here in America. I know it's not correct, but using it makes me a bit more conscious. I suppose you could say it's a personal quirk.
