See Your Name in Lights!
Greetings!

Have you ever ran into a television or film persona in real life and before realizing that you have seen them only on screen, wondered where you have met them before?  We often confuse tv or film personas with people we meet in real life, and we often feel very connected to them although we have never met them.
 
Over my short career on video, I have already had this happen to me, where people come up to me, recognizing me, and feeling like they know me, although we have never met before.  Because Yoga To Have Fun videos are a very accurate representative of who I am and what I believe in, I am happy to have them get to know me via film.  A video is worth more than a thousand words!
 
Then, last week when I included a request for video testimonials from viewers of the Yoga To Have Fun titles, I was most excited to see some of the people who had done my video in real life.  Chances were either that I hadn't seen them in a long time, or perhaps never knew them before.  I couldn't wait to use the technology of video to connect with some of my viewers in the reverse direction. I opened up my inbox each morning with anticipation of seeing a video link with some amazing yoga demonstrations.
 
Since I was requesting it from my audience, I thought I might as well give a homemade video a try myself.  I had someone hold the camera while I was in Rotterdam recently at a film festival, and performed a handstand against a Dutch windmill.  It was so much fun!  I loved documenting myself performing a favorite pose in a fun destination.  With some simple video tools, I quickly put the clip to music, and within 10 mins, my file was uploaded and available on YouTube.   Amazing!
