Isn’t there more to yoga? (NOMAD Newsletter June 2015)

Peace, freedom, and happiness are free. Anyone who tells you otherwise has an agenda.” ~LazyYogi

Hey NomadYOGIs,

As you probably know, we’re not interested in “Asana Contests” or a meticulously produced yoga-selfie gallery. Sure, it’s beautiful and even inspiring for some people. But we’re interested in learning more about your experience in life, your wisdom gained from the mat, and how you have learned what you’ve learned. The goal of our new Q&A platform is to elevate the conversation around the noble science of yoga, and promote yoga teachers based on their insight.

Our mission is to bring people together so they can find what they’re looking for, making it easier for yoga teachers to find students, and easier for students to find high quality teachers to deepen their practice, while avoiding the fluff that permeates this industry.

If you’d like to get your insight reposted across our social media please mention us @NomadYOGI or tag your post with #MoreYogaLessFluff. We’ll feature the best content on our homepage.

NomadYOGIs Share Knowledge:

In the practice of yoga, what difference does it make to be a vegetarian or a vegan? In a response to this common question Nancy gives some dietary suggestions for yoga practitioners that she learned from her teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Nancy also points out that “the way animals are treated should be considered by anyone who claims to be following the path of yoga”. Read More+.

Is there anything you remember you understood differently when you started practice? Baptiste explains how injuries transformed his own practice and the way he teaches. “It helped me become more introspective, to understand the role of yoga and the responsibility we have as teachers, so that students do not get hurt.” Read More+.

Reduce your workload

One of our goals is to provide an alternative to payment processors as well as reduce the need for newsletter services that don’t integrate with your social and transactional services.

Post your retreat or workshop and use all our features! We have simplified all the scheduling, marketing, transacting, search-engine-optimizing, promoting, and blogging. NomadYOGI helps you save your time at the computer, so that you can sit at your meditation cushion longer.

Our goal is to create a social network where our pursuit of yoga can thrive physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and academically. Please share this email with your friends.  To learn more about us and our goals, click here.

Let Your Self Go,

P.S. Our freemium model means we only make money when processing transactions for you. We’re not “selling yoga” as a fitness industry. Yoga is a tool for self-inquiry! We haven’t taken any money from Silicon Valley venture capitalists. So, unlike other social networks, we’re not under any pressure to sell user data, advertising, clicks, impressions or eyeballs.
