Letter from the Publishers
September traditionally for me meant Back to School and the first signs of Fall. School has been in session for several weeks now and things have settled into a routine. While we can hope for that first cool spell toward the end of the month, the leaves definitely won’t be turning color yet. One tradition that does continue at Natural Awakenings is that September is Yoga Month.
I confess that while I don’t practice yoga on a regular basis, I do enjoy visiting classes when I’m invited, attending monthly YogaMass® at Grace Episcopal Church when I am able, and practicing bhakti yoga at the ISKCON Temple. Cindy and I do practice pranayama at home and when we are stuck in freeway traffic. We find that it helps relieve stress and controls our blood pressure when mine is too high or Cindy’s is too low. Certainly, it is a better use of time than silently fuming about road construction or that crazy driver that cut us off.
One of the things that has impressed me is that there are SO many kinds and styles of yoga. Whether you are looking for a great workout or a quiet spiritual practice, there is a yoga for you. If you have tried a yoga class and it’s physically too challenging or just not your “cup of tea,” don’t give up. Go to the National Yoga Month tab on our website and check out the map to the over 90 yoga studios in the Houston area. Surely, one of them will be right for you. There are also a number of free yoga classes listed in our Calendar of Events.
This September is also the three-year anniversary of our purchasing of the magazine. We are saving the celebrations for November which was when we actually published our first issue so stay tuned for more details.
Take care. Have fun and we hope to see you at one of the many events that will be happening around Houston this month.
Mike & Cindy Hart
PS Our letter was written a couple weeks pre-Harvey. Wanted to let you all know that our home & office was not damaged and we are ok. Delivery of the print magazines should begin the first week in September as soon as it is safe for our drivers. Let's all pull together as we recover from this disaster.
