Episode 12: Level 1 Class at the Center for Yoga, 75 min

by Elsie on October 15, 2006

I’m back in Los Angeles! Happy to be back and at the same time wanting just as much to be back with my family. I came back to my incredible students whose faces and passion make it all worth it 🙂

My theme this week had to do with one of my favorite podcasts, “The Bitterest Pill.” If you want to hear the whole thing, which I truly suggest you do, you must go to thebitterestpill.com and check out episode #85, it’s amazing.

Another podcast that I mention is Fitness Rocks. This podcast is by Dr. Monte, who is sooooo passionate about health and wellness it’s really worth listening to. He gives you the facts about physiology, nutrition, studies that are being conducted or have been conducted about fat, food, diseases, you name it. Be informed! Fitness truly rocks.

Oh yes, the yoga blankets, check out some of these sites:

E –

Thanks for the mention! I can’t wait to hear this podcast. I’m sure it’s fantastic. I would have written you back sooner, but my e-mail has been miserable during my Comcast-to-Time/Warner switch over.

Hope you’re doing well and hope to see you soon.
