Namaste , 


We'd like to throw a special treat into your grocery bag before the holiday weekend starts.


The blessings of family, the fruits of the earth, and the pleasure of chilling for a few days are all part of our Thanksgiving tradition, and the majority of us in these parts have the good fortune to enjoy them. This weekend is a great time to remember our blessings, and to express a sigh of thanks.


We can also be grateful for the tradition of yoga, which comes to us from the other side of the world from Thanksgiving. The expression of yoga on this side of the world is as diverse as any melting pot, as myriad and tasty as an after-the-holiday soup.


In this email, our first issue of Food for Your Practice, we've arranged a little sampler of what's new and interesting in yoga around us today. Perhaps it will give you something to nibble on during a lull in the holiday weekend.


Like any holiday chef, we're interested in your reaction to what we've cooked up. You can let us know by clicking under the question mark at the bottom of this email, or by throwing your words into the comments box after an article.


Enjoy!!!Mid and Fay on Nantucket

Getting physical
Crescent lunge at DCY 

Yoga poses teach us how the body works; they teach us how it works on the mind. Here you'll find some interesting tidbits about doing yoga poses, from an MD, the Wall Street Journal, an expert on breathing in yoga, Forbes magazine, and others. In addition, we'll point you to an intriguing video about breathing while doing yoga, by the world-reknown yogi and breath enthusiast Leslie Kaminoff.
