Namaste , 



With Thankgiving in the rear-view mirror and gift-giving season at the next intersection, we're conscious again of the many blessings surrounding us in this bustling highway we're all on.


Like our last Food for Practice newsletter, this one brings you a sampling of gifts, another taste of the vibrant diversity of modern yoga. The main article immediately below explores in depth one of the most important aspects of yoga for practictioners of any age and experience level.


Elsewhere you'll find a smattering of new yoga gift ideas, a strikingly beautiful video and poem, and information about emerging research that may further yoga's acceptance as a form of therapy. Also we think you'll enjoy the video of Elvis doing yoga (for real!) and Bruin's star goalie Tim Thomas talking about his own yoga practice in the yoga for dudes section.  


There is so much to learn and observe in this wonderful melee of yoga! We hope you'll enjoy this week's taste. Please let us know if so, or what you'd like to see more of.


And remember that for us, the most wonderful holiday present is your presence...
