Radhanath Swami at BhaktiFest

Radhanath Swami’s autobiography, “The Journey Home,” reads like a cross between “The Little Buddha” and “The Adventures of Indiana Jones.” His book has been turned into a feature film, with stunning videography and crescendos. Fact is wilder than fiction, and his life story is proof of that. It’s about a Jewish boy with long hair and […]

Profile on a Yoga Studio Owner

When my daughter was a baby, I became an entrepreneur.  My husband and I opened up a tapas bar in South America. Even though it was his idea, and he had a restaurant management background, I ran the place while he kept his day job. It was tough to make the business profitable, and I […]

Men of all Shapes and Sizes Practice Yoga

Men and Yoga. In India, this is the norm. I get a special pleasure seeing men in the States, of all ages and all shapes, doing yoga. In the U.S., we have a stereotype of who is a yogi. I never thought I fit that stereotype. It took an older (than me–lol) man living at […]

Free Day of Yoga in San Antonio -- Finally

I’m a yoga addict. I don’t drink coffee, alcohol, or soda. I don’t smoke. I don’t gamble. But I’m an addict.  I gotta have several servings of yoga, each day. If not, I feel like I’m a zombie. Yoga invigorates me. Yoga relaxes me. Yoga defines me. Yoga unites my MBS. Yoga is my Union. […]

Lives Transformed Through Yoga

Most people think of yoga as a very private and quiet activity. Yogis typically perform their sequence of postures in tranquility, behind closed doors. That won’t be the case March 14-16 at the 2014 USA Yoga National Championship, when more than 200 highly skilled yogis representing 36 states will gather at San Antonio’s historic Aztec […]

Yogis in the Spotlight for National Competition

Yogis in the house, tell the truth.  You may be used to sweating and breathing up close and personal next to a hundred fellow yogis on their sticky mats. But how about a string of 150-200 yogis, one yogi at a time,  and 1500  onlookers? Most yoga studios have a special energy.  The  OM and Namaste […]

The Best Form of Intoxication is Healthy and Free

When The Beatles made their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show, in 1964, it changed the lives of an entire generation. As the Beatles found enlightenment in India, the search for self-realization and yogic philosophies saved many young people from digging themselves deeper into a dark world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Back […]
