• Theme for this week's classes: Tuning up the core
Increasing core strength can transform your yoga practice, improving your balance and bringing more ease to difficult poses while protecting the fragile lower back. In addition, it is likely to have a tremendously positive impact on the rest of your life, improving your posture, reducing back pain, improving your breathing and digestion, and perhaps even increasing emotional resilience.

• YMYB YouTube video channel live
Go to http://www.youtube.com/user/yogamindyogabody to check out my yoga videos, and subscribe if you like what you see. The more people subscribe, the more freqently I will add new videos, with a focus on how-to videos emphasizing alignment.
• YMYB on Google+ and TripAdvisor.com
The great thing about both these sites is that you can read (and write!) unbiased reviews of businesses you know. If you have an account on either website and feel inspired to write a short review, I would really appreciate it. Or just go and check out what other students of mine are saying:
(If your Google+ review does not appear right away do not worry. Google is experiencing some delays as they migrate products to Google+.)
• YMYB on Facebook
My weekly yoga musings and schedule are also available on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/YogaMindYogaBody
The greatest advantage of a Facebook page is that it enables a three-way dialog between me and you and my other students, so if you have any questions or comments about this week's theme, fire away. The disadvantage is that there is no guarantee that content from pages you "like" appear on your timeline, so you will still have to visit my page every week to read the weekly discussion.
• Some Recent Student Feedback
Here are the most recent quotes from my students. For more testimonials, see the Feedback page.
"One of the best yoga teachers I've ever come across in my 12 years of Hatha Yoga practice. As an Indian I can honestly say that Gernot is a true Yogi, he knows Yoga in depth - the science, art & philosophy and magic of Yoga. I enjoy his style of teaching, sense of humour and the way he gives individual attention to all his students. I've always left his class discovering so much more about myself, my body and Yoga. What a Blessing ! I'm missing his classes even though I'm right now in the land of Yoga - Mysore, S.India surrounded by some great schools & teachers. He will always be remembered ! Thank you Gernot."
"Gernot is a highly gifted teacher. I took his Intermediate Inversions Workshop and it was one of the most helpful, thorough, interactive workshops I've taken."
–Jenny (Yoga teacher, US)
"Thanks for an exhilarating and empowering Inversions workshop Gernot!"
"I only ever attended 2 of your clases (I was travelling in Chang Mai last year) but I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your little "tips" every week. I really like the focus you give to your classes. Last month I started a yoga teacher training course (here in Barcelona where I live) and I find your emails inspirational!! Thank you!
"Sadly I only had time for one private lesson with Gernot. I enjoyed so much receiving alignment instructions from you. Your explanations where so clear and you really took the time to see what I needed. Thank you for a wonderful 90 minutes."
-Henriette (Yoga teacher, Netherlands)
