“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” ~Ernest Hemingway
It’s been just a few months since we released our Q&A feature, giving you an opportunity to talk about ANY questions related to yoga. We’re excited to see yogis sharing personal transformations from their yoga paths, as well as discussing the historical and theoretical backgrounds of this practice.
This month, Anita Rafidi explores how our yoga practices can help us transform our own unique perspectives, and help us “drop the judgment.” We invite you to join Anita’s thoughtful reflection on how yoga brought humility to her life, and the conversation it has sparked.
Similarly, we invite you to “drop in” with your thoughts on the question posed by Naren Herrero regarding the relationship between Ahimsa and Dharma. #MoreYogaLessFluff
As usual, we are also featuring some amazing opportunities for yoga retreats this Fall — in Bali, Mexico, and New Hampshire. There’s a lot to choose from this month, so take a look and see what’s waiting for you on NomadYOGI.com.
NomadYOGIs Share Wisdom:
How has your yoga practice brought humility to your life?
“I used to ‘know it all.’ How people should live, what decisions or directions they should take, how to accumulate wealth, gain happiness, be successful. Since I have learned yoga, I have learned that everyone is on their own paths—and life is giving them their lessons.” Read More+
What is Ahimsa and how does it relate to Dharma?
“The Sanskrit word ahimsa has been popularly translated as ‘non-violence’, particularly in relation to Mahatma Gandhi and his political-spiritual methods for the independence of India. Anyway, I think the translation, though not inaccurate, doesn’t fully express the meaning of a very important concept in Hinduism as well as Buddhism and Jainism.” 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.
