The best yoga-related snippets from the web part 2

So here we are again, there’s a lot of great stuff that we’ve seen in the last ten days or so.

First up, two great clips of Richard Freeman. The first is Richard breathing with sound helped by Guruji’s count. Second is extracts from a much more recent talk that he gave in Germany, where he talks about, amongst other things, injuries and yoga.

Speaking of injuries and yoga, we came across this video from A.G. Mohan (a student of krishnamacharya for twenty years and author of Krishnamacharya: His life and teachings).

And still on a somewhat similar theme, I personally loved this blog post by Alistair Francis (a practitioner of ashtanga yoga and ayurveda) on ‘breathing the practice’.

This is an absolutely fascinating article on the perfection of the Sanskrit language. NASA are said to be thinking of using Sanskrit as a new computer language bescause it is so precise.

But the winner this week, by a country mile is this animated film by Nina Paley. It is a re-telling of the Indian epic, the Ramayana. The music and animation is really top notch and the wit with which the story is told, kept us hooked all the way to the end. Once we starting watching it the other night, we ended up staying up way past our bedtime. It’s absolutely brilliant!!
