Internet for Your Body: Refining your yoga palate

September 17, 2009

Today on the Huffington Post, Erica Heinz sums up our entire project in one blog post. Thanks, Erica! Marla, our work here is through. Think of all the raw food we won’t have to eat! Someone get me a cheeseburger.

Actually, Heinz has some excellent advice for anyone on a yoga journey of their own:

It can be hard to sort through the Sanskrit. Should you start Bikram to sweat out your toxins? or Anusara to “open your heart”? Maybe Vinyasa, to get strong and flexible. Or Kundalini, to balance your glands! Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Sivananda — what’s right for you?

Here’s the secret: just go.

So true! Especially in New York, where it would seem that there are more yoga studios per capita than police officers, the choice can be overwhelming. That’s partly what we’re going to be here for, but really, don’t listen to us. As Heinz puts it, “Yoga practice is like wine appreciation — the best way to learn is to taste…and gradually refine your palate.”

That’s an analogy I can get behind. Check out Heinz’s yogoer.com for the awesome map feature we only wish we had.

The internet is like yoga for your computer. Or is yoga like the internet for your body?
