Yoga Journal – Essential Reading

I just wanted to mention that I consider Yoga Journal a first-class publication. I’ve been really impressed by the thorough and thoughtful coverage of all things yogic — from meditation to props. Just looking at the list of authors demonstrates the quality of people buying into their product. I have a subscription to the magazine and will probably renew shortly for 2 more years. I visit the site a couple of times a week to look up old articles. It’s a kind of online encyclopedia about yoga. For instance, I found an excellent article (March/April 2002 issue) about the different approaches to pranayama among six yogic traditions: Integral, Kripalu, Astanga, Viniyoga, Iyengar, and Kundalini. The article was written by Claudia Cummings.

I have my PDA loaded with about 20 articles that I have been reading at my lunch break. I use iSilox to grab web pages and format them for a handheld. The trick is to first get a print version of the web page to eliminate ads and other non-essential graphics and links.
