Hello, SOF folk-
I was very recently profiled in the August 12th edition of The Wall Street Journal, in the "What's Your Workout?" column. The piece, entitled "Staying Sane and in Shape, Thanks to a Strict Yoga Regime," chronicles how I took up vinyasa yoga after moving to New York City to relieve stress & stay in shape. As part of the piece, I also gave props to the #1 New York Times bestselling book, "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. After meeting Gilbert, I was inspired to try yoga. My comments: "She [Gilbert] was so down to earth & was really changed by yoga. Even though we had different struggles I thought if it worked for Liz it could work for me." Here's the link to the piece, which includes video: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121823015603825485.html
What didn't make the final edit for the column was my deep feeling that my daily practice is a daily Sabbath, a sacred time -- what Rabbi Heschel called "a cathedral in time." And in that time I have a dialogue with my concept of the divine.
