As part of my teaching sabbatical, every August I look back at the blog to see what people have found the most useful over the past 365 days. I’m always a little surprised. The list below has some of my personal favorites as well as one that warms my heart!
Here’s my summary:
Two of the top five discuss form in asana in two of our most common poses, which is both good news and bad news. The good news is that people want to learn how to do them “right.” The bad news is that they don’t already know. 😉
One discusses the meaning of Namaste, arguably the most common Sanskrit word used in yoga classes. Again, I hope this means that our students are searching for meaning, not that we’re sprouting off terms in class without defining them.
One that always makes the top five is how we can use yoga to decrease belly fat. Need I say more about that one?
The surprise this year is the 50 ways to show authors some love article. Published relatively recently compared to the others, it hasn’t had as many days to collect hits, yet there it sits solidly at #3. That one warms my heart a little.
There they are below, for your enjoyment. As we head into fall, may you have many enjoyable blog reading moments in the future!
