Here is the latest crop of photos of kids who were inspired by my picture book, Watch Me Do Yoga.

Keep sending in your photos!

Kids love to do yoga with friends:

Sadhaka fundraising campaign

July 1, 2013

The  fundraising to complete the editing of Sadhaka: the yoga of BKS Iyengar, a feature documentary by my son, Jake Clennell, has less than 2 days to go. I was there in Pune with Jake when the idea was born. I have watched the video footage as it came back from India over a three year period, and I observed the pilot being edited. Go to Sadhakafilm.org to see the trailer, donate and be part of this wonderful feature documentary.
