I am enjoying the beautiful warmth of the sun, and loving the flowers and summer outside activities.
One of my favourite summer pastimes is reading under the glorious rays of the summer sun, and the book that I am immersed in right now is "Your Irresistible Life" by Glynnis Osher and Madhuri Phillips. It is giving me insight into Ayurveda Yoga, and how to nourish my body, mind and soul. Glynnis has opened a quaint shop off of Commercial Drive in Vancouver called Mystic Masala that I am finding hard to stay away from. You can check it out on their website themysticmasala.com
Although there is much to do in the summer, I am grateful and inspired that so many yogis, and yoginis are still coming to Ommamma Studio to enrich their yoga practice, and share their comments on how the combination of bike riding, tennis, jogging or other summer activities are enhanced by their yoga practice. I was even told that yoga helped with a yoginis' gun shooting practice, noticing her arms and legs were stronger, and her focus sharper... who knew?
If you are a surfer of the internet and get bored on those rainy summer days, here are a couple of sites that I follow and perhaps you might enjoy as well:
- YogaJournal.com has oodles of interesting yoga articles
- MindBodyGreen.com articles about diet, exercise, and more
- TaraStiles.com believes in enjoying yoga without the traditional ..."who made the rules?"
- SadieNardini.com rocker yogini... Vinyassa Yoga
- ShivaRea.com beautiful sun/moon energy
If you have others you enjoy and you might want to share, give me a shout. Enjoy the summer time, and always know how grateful I am that you choose to practice your yoga with us at Ommamma Yoga.
