Going Down Under! On November 20th, I'll hop a plane to fly to Sydney, Australia. I'll be there for a month, teaching and soaking up the summer warmth. While I'm gone, you faithful listeners will still be getting a new podcast every Friday. Look forward to a variety of sessions...backbends, intermediate, meditation...and a special surprise on December 2nd.

For those of you that would like to keep up with me on my journey, I'll be sending out my monthly newsletter, the JivaDiva Journal, as well as updates. Please feel free to subscribe to the newsletter through the 'contact' page of my website at

Also, on my website, for those of you who are itching for a longer class, I now have my 75 minute class 'Jai!' available for download. Visit the audio page for that one.

I'm really looking forward to meeting new students while I'm in Sydney. I've never been to the southern hemisphere, and can't wait to look up at the stars and stare into the depths of the milky way. It's good to look into the stars, and realize that we're a part of something so big. Let's keep making this big world smaller.

One way we can all help to make the world smaller is by getting to know each other better, and helping one another along our yoga journey. I've created a community board where you can post questions or comments inspired by the podcast, and help lead each other to the answers. Visit to join our community, which I'm proud to say is now 22,000 listeners strong!

Thanks again for making the JivaJam Yoga podcasts a real success. I never thought it would grow to be this big when I first posted, way back in July! Every day I checked my stats, and every day I am still grateful and amazed that so many of us are participating in yoga practice - and by doing so, we're all contributing to the enlightenment and happiness of our very small world.

Keep in touch! Om Shanti,
