Sun salute flip book, KD, the Smithsonian and more

A quick list of things you ought to check out.

  1. David Robson has posted a Surya Namaskara Flip Book.  Flip it and have fun. (Seems to fit in with our jumping back themes of late.) You might also want to read the introduction. Nice, quick take on ye olde Ashtanga practice.
  2. If you missed Tim Miller’s blog post this week, go back and read it. I guess it it sort of Part II on the passing of his mother. Speaking of Tim, the 2014 dates for his Maya Tulum week are up: Feb 1 – 8, 2014.
  3. For those in Los Angeles, the Krishna Das documentary will be playing at the Nuart for a week, beginning at the end of the month. And here’s all the theater  where it is scheduled to screen.
  4. Yeah, we sort of missed it (we blame the move!)… the New York Times ran answers to questions about practicing yoga as you are. But the good news: Part II just came out, so we’re not lagging there. (Just be warned, the answers include this: “I believe the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar are the most anatomically sophisticated and therapeutically oriented, but there are many other good types of yoga.”)
  5. We’ve already reported about the Smithsonian putting on a show about the history of yoga. Now comes word that it will be crowdfunding in support of the exhibit. Blame it on sequestration.
