I have a real soft spot for the Jivamukti Yoga crew, although I was laughing my ass off at Neal Pollack’s description in Stretch of his experience at one of their classes in NYC. Sharon Gannon’s book Yoga and Vegetarianism made me look at what I was eating in a completely new way. I’m a little scared of David, but boy do I love Sharon. She’s like Anais Nin, Kirtan, a ballerina and your cool hippie aunt all rolled into one person, with some vegan ice cream on the side. I have a few of their DVD’s, which I like a lot because of all of the chanting and cool music. For such a salty dog (who claims to NOT be a hippie), I sure do freaking love the woo woo chanting stuff. You should see how many Ana and Ravi Kundalini DVD’s I own. Scary! We do have some Jivamukti classes here in Vegas at Blue Sky Yoga, and I am still working up the courage to go.
Origin magazine is a relatively new, really bright and delicious yoga magazine. I wanted to hate it because it looked so slick and pretty, but the bougie secretly upscale bitch inside of me loooooves it. I have it on my kitchen table and I read it a little bit at a time. I stumbled across this interview on the Girlie Girl Army website (another guilty pleasure), and it’s quite enjoyable. And I do enjoy any convergence of yoga and Alice and Wonderland whatsoever:
