Best of Yoga Philosophy Weekly ~ A project by BobWeisenberg.
There is a lot of great yoga philosophy writing out there, but it is scattered among many websites and individual blogs.

To address the need for a platform that combines the best of yoga online and aiming to bring a lot more readers to the great writers, as well as generate robust discussions at all the great articles, I just started a new virtual magazine and forum called Best of Yoga Philosophy.

Here is how it works:

Every day I select the best Yoga philosophy articles on the Internet and post the links to PinterestFacebookTwitter, and Linkedin. You read the articles that interest you, and join in the discussions, if so moved.

Below are my choices for this week:

Every innovation of yoga philosophy holds the roots of its earliest coos and caws. ~ Matthew Remski ~ July 28, 2013 ~ “The books are talking to each other and to us, through history and change. It is folly to search for an ultimate view amongst them, because, like the best conversations of our lives, the discourse never ends…”



You Want to Know What Inspires Me? ~ David Garrigues ~ Jul 31, 2013 ~ ” I do genuinely like practicing by myself. I find that important things happen for me when I practice in solitude, without anyone else around…”
