“The life you’re living is the yoga you’re doing.”
I couldn’t agree more. These words express the focus of the Magazine of Yoga, a wonderful, and relatively new online magazine about all things yoga.
I am also very excited to tell you I will be a part of this magazine, writing a monthly column that began today! You can find my recipe for the vegetarian barley “risotto” pictured above and some thoughts about stress here.
The magazine covers a range of yoga topics, from interviews with yoga teachers, artists, yoga practitioners, book reviews, body image, healthy eating and more. The editor-in-chief, Susan Maier-Moul, is a founding faculty member for the Healthy Living Program at Kripalu Center in Massachusetts. Susan wants to ‘promote engaged everyday life as the key principle of freedom.’ She leads workshops and lectures that highlight the everyday benefits of yoga as an approach to managing life’s challenges and joys.
Margo Maier-Moul is the person who keeps everything moving as the operations officer for the magazine while she balances her work as a stage manager with New York’s Metropolitan Opera. Hopefully Margo’s work at the magazine is not as dramatic as the operas she stages, but she always has yoga to fall back on!
The word yoga from Sanskrit means union, referring to union with the divine. So when you think about it, you understand that yoga is more than poses (asanas) or different types of physical yoga practices. It is also about an approach to life.
I am so honored and excited to be part of the magazine. I hope you will check it out (subscribe! it’s free!!) and dig into the riches that are available to you. You don’t even have to be a yogi (or yogini) to benefit from its pages (or should I say, screens?)
Enjoy! (Find the recipe HERE)
