I was excited to see your article on yoga for athletes ("Play Ball," May '09). I'm an athlete who supplements my activities with yoga. I don't live the yoga lifestyle, but I know that athletes would benefit from similar articles in the future. I'll show this one to my athletic friends. Billy Brooks Westland, Michigan
I was more than ecstatic to find several pages on yoga poses for athletes. As a relatively new yogi and a dedicated volleyball player, I am thrilled to find poses that can benefit my game and my practice. Thank you for your broad perspective. Kate Baals Golden, Colorado
As a woman in her 40s, I have always appreciated the thoughtful, sophisticated feel of Yoga Journal. It has been my little sanctuary in the hustle and bustle of modern life. The magazine was peaceful, understated, and quietly pretty But I dislike the new "flavor" (May '09). Maybe your twentysomething audience feels differently. But flash is the last thing I want from my Yoga Journal. That's what Cosmo and People are for. Lisa Sterner Berkeley, California
I am a yoga instructor living in a small town, without easy access to other instructors. I really appreciate Yoga Journal's inclusion of the Home Practice pages. This morning I practiced two sequences, designed by Tias Little (Dec. '08) and Shiva Rea (Feb. '09). It's wonder
ful to see the flow of the practice and read about the purpose behind it. I really prefer this magazine instruction at times, because I can listen to my own music and relax in my own space. Thank you for bringing other instructors to me. Jennifer Hawkins Hock Franklin, North Carolina
Thank you, Aadil Palkhivala, for hitting the nail on the head ("The Brightness of Being," May '09). Yoga prepares us for meditation. Most classes have an hour of asana followed by, at the most, a 15-minute Savasana, where sinking into being and relaxation happens. Maybe it should be the other way around. Perhaps people are creating their own forms ofyoga because they haven't connected with their soul. Thanks for the great insight. Celeste Taylor Albuquerque, New Mexico
