Yoga, Meditation, and Knitting

The topic of meditation and knitting seems to come up frequently.  Adding yoga to that mix is only logical since yoga is, as I've frequently been told, designed to prepare the body to sit in meditation.  And of course, when we knit, we are most always sitting, often for long periods of time.  Not far from Albany in Lenox, Massachussets is the Kripalu Yoga Center which sometimes offers weekend workshops for yoga and knitting.  I think the last one was in February of this year.  These workshops are led by Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Animal House, Starman, etc.).  Here's a link to her bio as a program presenter at Kripalu http://www.kripalu.org/presenter/367 and on that page is a link to her store in nearby Great Barrington.
