The Physical Therapy Assistant Schools have named their Top 50 Yoga Blogs for a Healthy Mind and Body. They divide the list into categories such as "Yoga Wisdom: Live the Life, Not Just the Lifestyle"; "Yoga Practice Blogs: Learn the Moves That Will Give You A Healthier Body and Mind"; "Understanding Yoga: Wondering What the Hype is All About?"; and "Yoga Stories and News." This blog was named to the first category about living the life and not just the lifestyle: "Go with Linda on her journeys to India to study yoga and maintain mindfulness. Don’t expect any fluffy mumbo-jumbo – Linda is insightful, but frank."
Tee-hee. "Insightful, but frank." I like that because I've been called worse.
"Don't expect any fluffy mumbo-jumbo." Yeah, the physical therapists nailed it -- if you're looking for some peace-love-dove-connect-to-your-inner-butterfly yogaspeak, fahgeddaboutit. I'm an acquired yoga taste just like masala spice and South Indian sambar.
Other yoga blogs mentioned were Roseanne's, Grace's, and Brenda's, to name a few, but no mention of Dork, who was named to this list, and no Dawg, who I am sure subscribes to Groucho Marx's belief that he would not want to be a member of any club who would have him as member.
I was also named to the Top 100 Yoga and Meditation Blogs according to the X-Ray Technician Schools a while back, so I am curious: who are the people who determine these "best" lists and why are these schools doing it? Inquiring minds want to know.
OK, I guess I can drop the Rodney-Dangerfield-I-don't-get-no-respect act. If me and Yoga Journal's Yoga Buzz Blog are on the same top 50 list, I guess I've made it. Kinda.
I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille. Now if only I could make a little dough from writing!
