After a hiatus, in which I was blogging about the first-ever Yoga Journal Conference in New York City and visiting family, I'm back to blogging all of the buzz in the yoga community. (Did you miss me?)
First, I wanted to fill you in on a few fabulous yoga news stories you might have missed in my absence:
A Financial Times writer tries to heal himself with Anusara Yoga. He says he's a "bad yogi," but we know better. Read more here.
Plus-size yoga classes get some attention in the New York Times. Is it a great idea to have classes for this niche, or does it create an unnecessary divide? Read more here.
Vinnie Marino, the "unlikely Yoga King of Los Angeles" was also featured in NYT in a piece that included a fascinating glimpse into his classes. "More than a grueling workout, Mr. Marino's class is a community, maybe even a benign cult. Students go almost daily to keep fit, as well as for the social life. They bond at his retreats. Some have gotten married." Read more here. (You can also see Vinnie Marino on the YJ Web series, Ogden: The Inappropriate Yoga Guy.)

New York is following Michigan's lead and has begun asking studios with yoga teacher training programs to register as trade schools. Read more here.
