  3. Hello Timothy. I stumbled upon your site a few days ago, while doing some research on the Koshas. I am an Ashtanga instructor who has been working on his own book for the past four years, a simple book which incorporates the philosophy of my own practice. I want to write something I can give to my students to fill them in on all the background material of the practice. As you may well know, the information about yoga and its philosophy goes on and on.

    I am somewhat surprised that your site does not have too many comments on it. It is very well written. I would expect more comments from a site as rich in information and as well laid out as yours. Please don’t be discouraged if you don’t have a huge population yet, but keep working on it. I will point it out to some of my friends, and good things take time to develop.

    I signed up today for a free membership so I could post and tell you how much I have enjoyed reading all the stuff under Yoga 101 and Yoga Philosophy. You have done your research, and I bet it took you a long time to accumulate all of this information. I liked the part on the Vedas and the Upanishads, the Gita, and so forth – yoga roots and references. It can take a new yogi quite a while to learn all of this stuff. Yoga is such a massive field of knowledge.

    I am glad you have a book on the market, and hope it does well. I am sure it is as well written as your little articles and information pieces. I will continue to read your web site, and make some comments as I do. I have enjoyed it so far, and it will help me to make sure that my writing is as simple, yet comprehensive as I hope it can be.

    As you obviously have a physical practice somewhere, or a studio, where is it?
