Originally, I thought I would relocate this blog to my new website, but then I realized something: this blog is not about me. This blog is about yoga in college and while I am the demographic that I am writing about and to, yoga for college students is a cause and topic so much larger than just me.
And Tumblr is the venue where I want to write about it because Tumblr is social and interactive and allows me to connect with likeminded people through seeking out inspiration from them.
That said, I want to introduce the future of this blog:
Sunday Routine ~ I have a slight obsession with how people spend their time because what we do says a lot about who we are. Thus, I will be modeling this series off the NYT’s Sunday Routine column in the Metropolitan section. But there’s a twist! The routines I will profile will be those of yoga teachers! Clearly, they’re not in class or teaching 24/7. They have lives outside of the yoga room and it is using these lives that we see how the practice can be embodied off the mat.
Meditation Mondays ~ My own meditation practice currently consists of ten minutes in the morning of Metta, or Lovingkindness meditation. It is something I have not explored super in depth and yet the purpose of yoga is simply to get a better seat for meditation so I will embark on this journey through this blog, by featuring different styles of meditation every Monday.
Dharma Talk Tuesdays ~ Pretty self-explanatory - I’ll post a dharma class from one of my classes that week, now that I’m teaching!
Teacher Thursdays ~ Expect a video of an awesome and inspiring yoga teacher!
Sutra Saturdays ~ The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are, more or less, the yogi’s handbook to life. There are many translations out there, but on this blog, I want to synthesize the translations I’m reading and translate them into the language the college student speaks - that of hookups, midterms, dorms, roommates, frat parties, libraries, and campus life.
Oh, and in case you can’t tell, I’m a sucker for alliteration!
I’m excited to embark on this journey with you.
