Taking note of a lucky find

I came across another yoga blog, yogagirl – As a mantra of fact, [MLS: no longer updates as of 08/2010] thanks to an assist from Gail Pickens-Barger who shares my love for Peru and yoga. Yogagirl blogs very diligently. I really am going to have to set up a blog rolling feature on this site.[MLS: Now makes her web presence at Vino & Vinyasa ]

I mistakenly wrote Mantra of Face, originally, and the error has been correctly. I even added the “As” to be textual. Sorry, yogagirl, it was a long day.

Spirit and Project Managment

Niranjani focuses on two topics — Project Management and Spirituality, a kind of ecclectic selection of topics. Raj Waghray, its author, also writes about the Art of Living and meditation, as I do. He’s over in Bangalore, India and I’m here in the States. He was kind enough to contact me that he enjoyed reading my site. One of Raj’s entries points to an article by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, One people in the newinpress on Sunday [MLS: links no longer work]. This seems to be an ongoing column entitled “The Art of Self Discovery.” I will have to check it out.

Blogging from the lotus position, part II

Julie’s Lotus Garden (link no longer active) was kind enough to link to this blog and leave a comment on the paraplegic yogi item. Like me, Julie is blogging her yoga experience, starting roughly the same time I did, so I plan on adding her to my resource pages, as well as my blogroll — whenever I get around to setting it up. Julie also points to Astangi.net [link has gone dead] where you can get a blog of your own. There are five blogs currently online.

Blogging from Lotus position

Alan Little’s Weblog represents everything I’d like to achieve with this weblog. His daytime job is computers. He also brings some great photography skills to the service of his yoga. It’s a privilege to be given this window into his practice, especially when he’s been taught by Pattabhi Jois, the Ashtanga master, in India. There’s a lot to explore off of his site.

Alan also has enough of his other interests (music, his first child) that you see how his yoga integrates with the rest of his life.

Blogging Peers

I found this blog, yogAndrew.com [MLS: no longer being produced], started up late last year — I think, because there’s no archive listing. Of course, Andrew Bartelt is a far more accomplished yogi than I — in fact, he’s been an instructor. In an additional coincidence, his day-time job also happens to be computers. Andrew is really on top of things because he has already grabbed one of the new blog templates being offered by Blogger in the relaunch of the service this past weekend.

I was searching in Technorati for other blogs that focus on yoga, but could not find many. There is also The Eureka Report that deals with meditation but also has some references to yoga, as well. The author — a guy named Mike (likely story) — says he is “examining ‘tools’ to explore the nature of reality and existence and to awaken native capacities.” He’s been blogging since early this year.

Finally, there is American Swami: “Swami Prem is America’s leading authority on the art and science of traditional yoga and the psychoenergetic healing practices.” He takes his yoga very seriously. He has links to seven other yoga blogs (located in the sidebar, down the page).

Postscript: As you might expect, having spent some time following through links for these three blogs has shown me that there are a lot of other yoga-related weblogs out there. You just have to know how to find them. More details and links to come later.
