Nursingdegree.net has a couple of interesting posts in its blog:

“77 Surprising Health Benefits of Yoga” By Alisa Miller

“The Ultimate Guide to Yoga: 100 Blogs, Tutorials, and Resources” By Christina Laun (Sadly, Y:A+S didn’t make the cut.)

Anti-Gravity Yoga: Crunch now offers specialized yoga classes practicing poses suspended from the ceiling. Available at locations in NY (in Fort Greene), LA and Miami, with Chicago coming soon. Check it out at antigravityyoga.com. Looks like fun. (examiner.com)

Yoga Doc: In the documentary “Enlighten Up!” the filmmakers take a complete newbie to yoga and immerse him in it for a month, even going to India to meet the living masters such as Pattabhi Jois and BKS Iyengar. The movie has started to play in limited engagements here and there. (I’m seeing it at the San Francisco IndieFest Documentary Film Festival in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait!) Here’s some coverage from it Boulder, CO run:

Om the road: Boulder skeptic immerses himself in yoga for film (coloradodaily.com)

Egg Block: Diane Cesa at The Everything Yoga Blog has a review of a new egg-shaped foam yoga block.

Famous People Do Yoga Better: The Huffington Post has a piece on the media and business commodification of yoga. (Do Yoga, Get Rich?: High Rollers Are Hitting The Mat)

Choosing the Best Style for You: WebMD offers an overview of the different styles of yoga. As usual, Iyengar comes off as only being suitable for the aged and infirm. (A pet peeve of mine.)
