Online Yoga Communities of Note

Okay, before I get started, just a couple of quick links to my favourite online yoga forums. Been on a few, and I'd say that the newsgroups and Yahoo groups are definitely to be avoided. The usual trolls hang about there, flame wars, spammers and that the sort of nonsense, no community there at all. Bulletin boards are the way to go, as they can be effectively moderated to get rid of the above.

The first one I found and enjoyed was the Ashtanga EZBoard Board. It is a great resource, especially for Ashtanga neophytes, but i have drifted away from there. You will find, amongst the fantastic wealth of information, a few intense regulars who can be a bit rude, and who I found more than a trifle annoying, but on the whole it's a good place to be.

The best, though is undoubtedly Erich Schiffman's "Moving Into Stillness" EZBoard. There's a real community spirit here, and the more you join in the more you'll get out of it. Hope to see you there!
