August 2013: Virginia is Definitely for Yoga Lovers

Where Did the Summer Go!?

In addition to enjoying some delicious time outside connecting with nature (VITALLY IMPORTANT!) we have spent the heat of the day inside, adding hundreds of new downloads to our NEW download store ( Kino MacGregor, Cora Wen, Elise Miller, David Garrigues, & Andrey Lappa, to name a few). We have updated hundreds of yoga studios in our yoga studio index. We have added new poses to our yogi-sourced asana index and curated dozens of teacher galleries. We have a VERY complex website and have spent the summer putting all of pieces together on the quilt that is our multimedia yoga website, iHanuman 3.0!

We will be handing over the keys to our teachers and to YOU, the community, this Fall. We are in a phase in what we call in the technology world, Beta Testing. This means, we want teachers and students of all shapes and sizes, to test the site and give us feedback. If you are interested in committing a few hours of your precious time into helping to make this the best site it can possibly be, please Contact US. And we will send you further details.

And if you would love to help us out, but are not necessarily ready to take on the role of beta tester, you can help in other ways, like by purchasing a download, subscribing to our podcast, telling your friends or submitting asana images (pictures of you practicing your favorite poses).

In the meantime, if you are in Virginia in the September, there happens to be an incredible amount of excellent opportunities to practice with amazing teachers.
Stay outside as long as you can and THEN come back inside when the weather cools down and get ready for the new site!

Enjoy the remaining days of summer.
With Love,
