So we’re going to guess you have all been appraised of the latest media blitz on yoga in America – ‘yoga moguls‘! it’s all posers! commoditization and Star Wars Yoga! Well if you’re curious at all how we got from point A to point Brandname then you may be interested in reading Stefanie Syman’s book covering those points and literally the space in between, The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America. Ms. Syman was kind enough to answer some reader questions on the book, and now we’re bestowed the great pleasure of giving away two copies! Fun!
WIN: The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America by Stefanie Syman (published June 22, 2010). We’re giving away 2 copies! Thanks to the publisher for providing.
HOW TO ENTER: Since we’re on the subtle body subject, let’s talk meditation! DO YOU have a meditation practice? If yes, how, when, where? Do you have a mantra? Use visualization? Tell us your tricks and tips. If the answer is no, feel free to belly up your excuses! Aw come on, we won’t judge. Maybe you can share the one thing you do where you lose yourself in that action…is it’s brushing your teeth, making your kids’ lunches, playing the guitar, focusing on your breath? ahem… etc. Everything goes in the comments. Two winners will be chosen at random early next week. Looking forward to the responses! Good luck!
UPDATE: WINNERS! Many thanks to everyone who entered and offered their own thoughts on meditation. This may have been the most inspiring giveaway yet! We hope you got a chance to read everyone else’s comments. Thank you all for sharing!
