Kathryn Budig is Yoga’s Rising Star

It seems appropriate for us to feature Kathryn Budig, an internationally respected yoga celebrity. Kathryn is not only a wholesome beauty who graces the cover of several yoga magazines, and appears nude in those tasteful yet eye catching ToeSox ads in the pages of Yoga Journal, Kathryn is also a foodie.

Passionate about sharing her favorite recipes, cooking techniques and ways to keep your refrigerator free of junk and chemically toxic food, Budig is a great resource for keeping people like you and me healthy and fit. For example, her Lemony Chicken Quinoa Soup is a perfect vitamin packed recipe that helps combat the flu this time of year. Or, check out her signature Save Me Smoothie, a recipe that includes spinach, blueberries, flax seed oil and other fabulous nutrient dense food.

Kathryn has been featured on E!, Food Network, Shape and in The New York Times. She serves as the brand representative for ToeSox and is an ambassador for Pangea Organics, an organic skin care product company. She is working on her latest big project, “The Big Book of Yoga,” to be published by Rodale very soon. (more…)

Yoga for Christians

If you haven’t tried yoga because the thought of chanting praises to an unfamiliar deity after Sunday morning mass makes you cringe, fear not. Christian Yoga is making its way across the country and throughout the world as an alternative yoga practice for those who would rather say Amen than Namaste.

Even though yoga is not a religion, many Americans may still be reluctant to try yoga for the first time due to their strong devotion to the Christian faith. DeAnna Smothers and Courtney Chalfant, a mother and daughter team from Chandler, Arizona founded Yahweh Yoga in 2005 for that very reason.

Yahweh Yoga is a Christ-centered practice and is designed to give people the opportunity to feel comfortable deepening their relationship with God, while gaining all of the other health benefits of yoga.
