Those of you who are regular YD readers will know J. Brown has been bringing his insightful, honest and thought-provoking yogopinions for years. Whether it’s on the merits of sustainability or how gentle is the new advanced, we’ve enjoyed reading what J. has to offer. Besides being a skillful writer and thinker, J. is also a yoga teacher (studying traditions in Ashtanga-Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Kirshnamacharya/Desikachar/Mark Whitwell) and yoga studio owner. Yep, he’s a yogi, too! And it’s our great pleasure to share with you another one of J.’s great offerings, this time in DVD format.
In his very first Yoga DVD, J. Brown will lead practitioners through “a deeply breath-centered, therapeutic yoga practice that adapts to individual needs.” With no direct body-related goal in mind (read: this is not your patented weight-loss DVD), the five different practices are meant to help improve “well-being, intimacy with self, and lessening of pain.” This DVD is for everyone and anyone.
- 5 different practices (7, 15, 30, 60 and 70 minute options equaling 3 hours total)
- Customizable teaching commentary.
- Amplified breath soundtrack.

WIN: We’re giving away J. Brown’s Yoga DVD to 5 yogadorks, courtesy of Mr. Brown himself.
TO ENTER: We hope your haiku muscles ready because it’s about that time! Samadhi knows that, during this time of year especially, we could all use the reminder to slow down and turn inward. But there are so many festivities and treats! We know! Totally valid, and fun, but we really are so lucky to have yoga and meditation to bring us back to our center. In your best haiku-itude, share with us how you may take haven in the sanctuary of your yoga practice in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle. Reminder: haikus are three line poems with the first line 5 syllables, second line 7 and the third line 5 again.
bright lights, jingle bells
we inhale pie and fresh pine
exhale peace and joy.
The giveaway will close 11:59 pm Wednesday, December 4. Five winners will be chosen at random and announced soon after. Good luck!
