The Practice of Yoga - An Interview with Nancy Moran Mermelstein
I've always been taken with the practice of yoga. I just plain like the idea of it. Born into a vegetarian, meditating family, yoga was part of daily life. It was the class that everyone took. Now, on the occasion that I do yoga, however gracelessly, I feel strong and beautiful. When I was pregnant with my son, I did a yoga for pregnancy DVD that made me feel so relaxed and fit. It's amazing.
I haven't done yoga in a while, though I plan on starting up classes again in the fall. I feel a strong need to nurture my body, and I know that yoga will play a major role in doing so. Everyone that I know who practices yoga looks amazing and seems more centered than the rest of us.
I am so thrilled to be starting this blog off with a interview with Nancy Moran Mermelstein, the director of the beautiful Prana Yoga Center in Denville, NJ.
