In addition to writing for this blog, she has contributed an entry on yoga to The Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism and a chapter to Fields in Motion: Ethnography in the Fields of Dance (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2012) . She is also a songwriter/multi-instrumentalist with five solo releases (www.priyathomas.com) and an experimental project called iroquois falls.
On a personal note: some have asked me why I started this blog. I think it's about gratitude. A few years ago now I lost perhaps the biggest influence/friend/teacher I had in my life to suicide. I got lucky and found yoga helped when I needed it most. My friend either did not have luck on his side this time around; or his illegible choices simply expressed the blueprint, the precise design for his own life. Maybe this blog is a memorial of sorts, or a reminder that all life is memorial. I thank all of my teachers and friends along the way that kept me standing: the folks at the West End YMCA, YogaSpace, Downward Dog, and Centre of Gravity. I hope the blog reaches out in some way.
