It is a masterful combination of yogic wisdom, body mechanics knowhow, and spiritual enrichment into this 342-page expert yoga workbook and blog. The interior of both the book and blog is beautifully integrated and engages one on many different levels.The information contained from within the physical book is mirrored and cleverly integrated in throughout blog. And, because the blog is an icloud-based, it offers countless benefits that the physical book could not. This is exactly what helps to make your ALFW experience more fun, engaging and effective. And while the physical book is personal and something you can write into, the blog, nonetheless, allows one to work and collaborate with like-minded people. It is truly a great way to cultivate new friendships or work with others such as in yoga teacher training programs. Simply put: ALFW blog is a dynamic yoga-oriented social platform that helps to foster greater awareness throughout the changing seasons of you life.As the author and designer of ALFW book and blog, it is my great hope that you will take full advantage of what both platforms have to offer.Organized by seasons of the year, the book and blog is filled with copy, charts, removable cards (book only) , and illustrative graphics that enmesh yoga’s physical, mental, spiritual, scientific and emotional aspects, including:stories and explanations of yogic principles & posesmudras for meditationaffirmationshaikuchakras and energetic meridiansjournaling and workbook opportunitiesALFW blog has 18 different tabs or entry points (also organized by season) for which to explore its dynamic platform. So, for example, the physical book has 102 workbook questions, yet in the blog these same workbook questions exist and reside in a tab labeled “Workbook Questions.” This means you can answer every workbook questions by either transferring or rewriting your responses— again, a very easy way to share and get immediate social feedback. With ALFW blog you can elect to keep all elements of your work either public or private. This ability to control your blog is really exciting because not only does it provide various levels of safety, but also allows you to share the many beautiful aspects of your being with other people.ALFW blog also offers videos, podcasts and other free-of-charge downloads that truly enhance your experience. The blog is all ready to go— just sign up, share of your self and read the work of others.The book and its blog is amazing in its depth and its accessibility! It brings together so many activities, options, layers of self-enrichment in a beautifully illustrated, coherent and thought-provoking way. Again, as the author and designer of ALFW blog site, I have decided to incorporate other features such as the “Community Voice” and the “Diet and Nutrition” tabs.There are 18 tabs belonging to our ALFW blog. And this is where our ALFW yoga community discusses and exchanges riveting ideas such as the overall importance of cultivating a yoga-like mind and the encompassment of eschewing a conscious healthy lifestyle.ALFW is unique in that we have designed and developed what is called the Personal Emotions Imprint Map (PEIM). The PEIM is a very effective, self-reporting psycho emotive tool that allows an individual the ability to track, gauge and measure their overall emotional response mechanisms— all of which pertain to the ALFW workbook questions and journal entries.
