living life virtually in your PJs

the beauty of being able to work from home is that i can get up in the morning, fire up my computer, and voila! i'm productive.

i don't have to get dressed.

i don't have to sit in traffic. or wait for the bus. or risk the wrath of an annoyed motorist who thinks my bike happens to be in his way.

and i don't have to worry about my boss coming up from behind and catching me red-handed as i check my personal email and social networking sites on company time. oops.

honestly, i've gotten so spoiled with this lifestyle that i laugh about how i spend my days clad in either yoga clothes (when i leave home) or pajamas (when i don't). so when i found out that i can now attend a yoga conference without leaving home, i immediately thought -- where do i sign up?

the 2011 Virtual World Yoga and Meditation Conference will be held from february 8th thru the 12th. and yes, that's THIS WEEK. but since i don't have to fly anywhere to attend, i won't have to worry about paying the exorbitant last-minute rates for an airline ticket or a hotel. all i'll need is an internet connection and a phone. and if the session is scheduled for a time that is inconvenient for me, no worries; i can access the archived version and listen to it up to two weeks later at my convenience! yay!

i've gone through the event schedule and have already highlighted a number of lectures that i want to attend. check this out:

~ Andrea Albright: Yoga For Weight Loss
~ Krisha Kaur: Practicing Forgiveness and Finding Meaning in Your Life
~ Nischala Joy Devi: Opposites Attract – The Perfect Yogic Balance of Head and Heart
~ Paul Fowler: Therapeutic Self Massage
~ Gary Kraftsow: Yoga Therapy: Ancient Insights for Modern Healing – Part 1 and Part 2
~ Wade Morissette: The Power of Mantra
~ Bradford Teasdale: Herbal First Aid – Nutrition and Herbs for Structural Health
~ Laura Cornell: Green Yoga: Harnessing Yoga to Address Contemporary Eco-Crisis
~ Robin Rothenberg: Befriending the Body: Yoga for Chronic Pain and Illness – Part 1 and Part 2
~ Priti Robyn Ross: Exploring the Basic Principles of Alignment
~ Felicia Marie Tomasko: Ingest, Digest, Rest – Ayurvedic Tips for Healthy Digestion
~ Ishwari Jay: Anusara Yoga: Freedom from Inside Out

here's a download copy of the program guide:
Virtual World Yoga Conference - Yoga, Meditation, and the Philosopher's Stone

there'll be raffle prizes, including books, DVDs, and CDs, and as is the case at yoga conferences, there'll be discounted shopping, too! i could do some major damage to my credit card if i'm not careful...

if this sounds like something you'd like to like to join me at (maybe we can even sit at a coffee shop with free wi-fi and take a session together!), you can click here to register for the 2011 Virtual World Yoga Conference. in addition, if you enter the code AYO219, you can get $50 off your registration fee!

this conference starts this TUESDAY, so act now! and let me know which sessions you're taking so i can look for you... virtually, of course :)

Really Yoga is a wonderful exercise that gives all the energy you need and the workout without any side effects. It is also the best way to burn extra calories. I also use Yoga for morning workout. It helps for a better start of the day and to burn extra fat. It keeps me in shape and good health.

It's great to be able to work from home. Aside from what you had mentioned, I get to spend time with my family. For me, these are the extra benefits of being a yoga teacher.
