CD or not CD? I've been an avid reader of Yoga Journal since I discovered it five years ago. I often use the pose sequences in my classes and the articles to refine my own practice. I also have a stack of the magazines in my class which the ladies take home and swap. After attending a weekend yoga retreat eating only raw food we all wanted to change our diet (though not too drastically) and find your recipes inspirational and delicious. One thing which started me reading were the free music CD's which I still use in my classes. Is there any chance you may be bringing them back? Keep up the good work. KATHY GREENSIDES, NZ We are looking at its viability for the future, Kathy. But right now if you…

World’s longest tree pose chain? Last month an army of 50 yoga enthusiasts assembled on a Bundaberg beach with their colourful yoga mats. Stretching their way along the pristine shoreline, the group of 50 participants reached their arms to the sky and their hands to each other at an attempt to form the longest continuous line of Vrksasana (Tree pose). Led by Carmen Lee-Schneider of Love Life Live Yoga, future yogis of all ages stretched, twisted and flowed their way through an invigorating vinyasa sequence before standing together and demonstrated the true meaning of the day’s event-building community. Carmen said: “It is my dream to build a community and to offer opportunities like this for people to come together. It is not just about yoga. It is about loving life and…

Body art can be beautiful, but if you’re not ready to commit to something permanent, trendy temporary tattoo jewellery may be just your thing. These ornate, nontoxic, metallic designs look like actual accessories or tattoos, can last up to a week, and are able to withstand a sweaty hot yoga class or dip in the ocean (though not oily skin-care products). We love the layered Indian-style motifs from the Indigo collection by Lulu DK (, and the bohemian Tribe of Jewels necklaces ( And to combine good fashion sense with doing good, don the henna-inspired Flash Tattoos Sheebani bangles (, which yield a 5-percent donation from your purchase to The Miracle Foundation, a nonprofit that works to help orphans in India.…
