Note that several of these titles [marked with **] have corresponding articles in elephant journal . In all of those cases, the articles were inspired by the workshops — and in many of them, the articles are adaptations from the blogs.
So how do you choose which to read? That depends on what you’re looking for, of course. The blogs are much longer, and include detailed descriptions of yoga postures and exercises. The elephant journal articles are more concise, focusing on the philosophical dimensions of the topic and their off-the-mat applications.
