Mindful Monday Recap: Yoga, Kombucha, Summer, Sex, Party Tricks and More!

My Top 108 yoga and (maybe) related blog finds of last week

Just kidding … more like Top 10 (whew!)

Definitely not in the "light reading" category but does pose some important questions. "If only I had teeth down there," A South African doctor invents a female condom with "teeth" to prevent rape. Is this perpetuating the the fear and expectation that rape is just a reality …. or can we move beyond it? And how?

Thoughtful and thought provoking post via Brooks Hall – Yogic Muse. Yoga teachers must read: Not My Yoga!

Great post about trying Bikram Yoga for the first time and mind over hot-humid-sweaty-stinky matter via Wholly Yoga. If you can't stand the heat – be present.

Questioning the Kombucha Kraze. So, Whole Foods has pulled all kombucha from their shelves because the alcohol content is a tad on the illegal side (no wonder it makes us feel so goooood). Read The Non_Kombucha Drinker's Guide to Kombucha Tea. I found out about this post through, who else, elephantjournal.com.

It's all about the title – Nauli: Gross your friends out, improve digestion, find your bandhas … all in one party trick.

Ignorance and misinformation is frustrating, yes, but we can have a sense of humor about it, right? In fact, I believe it is a requirement before you read Yoga: A Religion for Sex Addicts

The ever-fabulous, often upside down, Cora Wen shares some HOT tips and Traditional Chinese Medicine's Prescription for Health This Summer.

I tuned in for YogaDork's coverage of Namaste NYC: Times Square Solstice Yoga and Yoga at the Great Lawn …. links and really great photo's included. Even a little rain couldn't stop thousands of yogis from gathering and sharing their collective focus in Central Park with Elena Brower leading them through "10 minutes of pure heart."

Here is the video of the amazing  10 minute, record breaking yoga class with Elena Brower at the Yoga at the Great Lawn event … via YogaGlo.

Have you checked out the Asheville Yoga Center's blog yet? Well, what are you waiting for? Wonderful articles from many, many talented teachers and students including Meditation: Making Friends with the Minotaur and the science behind Better Sex through Yoga.

Have a great week everybody and please feel free to share a favorite blog or article that you read recently.

It can even be one of your own. Just leave a link in the comments below!

Yours in mindful media,

    Greetings from Lamb! Thank you for stopping by to show me some bloggy love. It was quite a shock to wake up and discover that I’d been featured on SITS, especially with my face covered in sticky cinnamon! Now I have lots of fun new blogs to explore. If you do try out my face mask, be sure to take a photo and email it to me. I’ll feature you in a post with a link to your blog 🙂

    i have no idea what kombucha is. but i’m intrigued. also. the way you put “sex” and “party tricks” next to each other intrigues me, too. and scares me.

    sex sales everything, and it seems sex helps make yoga more popular. I really don;t agree with that, but I think is just like u said it’s all about the titles

    Thank you for all of your labor on this blog. My mum take interest in engaging in research and it’s simple to grasp why. A lot of people notice all of the powerful ways you create precious tricks via the web blog and in addition recommend participation from some other people on this issue and my daughter is starting to learn a whole lot. Have fun with the rest of the year. You are conducting a very good job.

    Namaste from Portland – love your site!  I recently started a blog – it's about living food and health but I'm a yoga teacher and ayurvedic practitioner so my food frenzy is definitely under that umbrella.  let me know what you think!  jean-pierre at http://www.KitchenSinkFarming.org
