April 2014 Desktop Calendar

April2014I’m having an even harder time trying to shake off Winter this year due to the fact that I moved further North. I promised myself that I wouldn’t complain about the weather up here in Maine so instead I’ll just use this nice beach scene to help me forget the fact that there’s still snow on the ground.

March 2014 Desktop Calendar

March 2014
For the past couple of years my months of March were much more about ducklings than shamrocks so to honor my little quacks they are gracing this month’s YogaDudes desktop calendar. At least I picked a photo with a lot of green to also honor St. Patrick’s Day. My little ducks have always always brought a smile to my face and I hope they also brighten your days. It may keep us going until Spring finally arrives!

February 2014 Desktop Calendar

Feb2014

Nothing better than another YogaDudes calendar featuring my all-time favorite yogi photographer and buddy Sandy Foster of yoga bliss photo. February is the month of love, but that doesn’t mean just human love. Let’s also celebrate the love we have for our pets. This photo couldn’t be more adorable. We hope this calendar brings a bit of warmth to your hearts (especially to those in the cold climates). Thank you Sandy for allowing YogaDudes to use it.

January 2014 Desktop Calendar

Jan2014

This month I used an image from one of my favorite graphic design sites as a basis for this calendar. Of course I couldn’t help but to include some YogaDudes into the scene. I hope everyone gets at least a couple of these activities in this month. Have fun, do yoga, relax, meditate, but most importantly be grateful for whatever the new year brings you.

A New Yoga Book for the New Year

PickYourYoga_cvr.inddDoes anybody have “Start a Yoga Practice” at the top of their New Year’s Resolution list? Many people may be very interested in starting yoga, but at the same time may feel overwhelmed by all the different types of yoga that are offered. How do you pick one when you’ve never tried any of them? I’ve been practicing yoga for nearly 15 years and I still don’t really know the differences between all the various types. When I discovered the new book, Pick Your Yoga Practice: Exploring and Understanding Different Types of Yoga I just knew that it would be a great reference for a lot of yogis, both new to the practice, as well as veterans like me who may never have ventured into the different approaches.

In Pick Your Yoga Practice: Exploring and Understanding Different Types of Yoga  (New World Library, December 15, 2013), yoga teacher and author Meagan McCrary provides the first encyclopedia of different yoga styles as a reference for those new to yoga and experienced yogis and teachers alike. Her comprehensive approach offers an informative and in-depth look at all that yoga has to offer.
Pick Your Yoga Practice explores seven of the most prominent approaches, plus ten “best of the rest,” in terms of what a class is like, the level of physical exertion involved, and the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings. McCrary’s approach digs deeper than the physical descriptions of the practices to include everything from a style’s philosophical foundation and teaching methodology to what-to-expect and health benefits.
Meagan McCraryis a Los Angeles based yoga teacher and the author of Pick Your Yoga Practice. She teaches for Equinox Sports Clubs, works one-on-one with some of the entertainment industries leading professionals, and holds workshops and retreats nationally and internationally.  Visit her online at http://www.meaganmccrary.com.

Start your year off right by learning about all the difference yoga disciplines and picking the best one for you. You can find the book on Amazon here.
