Congrats to Kyoko K for creating the awesome new Namaste Book Club logo.  We’ll be making some items and will be sending her a shirt and a $30 Powell’s gift certificate to say congratulations.  We love it!

Let us know what you think and what products you’d like to see with a Namaste Book Club design on them.  Congrats to Kyoko and the whole club for this great design!


Create a Namaste Book Club Logo Contest

Create The Namaste Book Club Logo Contest!

We’ve had lots of requests for Namaste Book Club shirts and even bookmarks!  But despite our creativeness in starting the club, we have no skill in conjuring up the perfect logo.  We need help!   So we are announcing a logo design contest, here are the rules:
Design a logo for Namaste Book Club that will become our property but will grace all shirts and bookmarks and future items.
Logo must be black and white, submitted as a jpeg file, and incorporate both a book and an asana image
Contest entries will be accepted at our email: until noon Dec. 15, 2009
The best part:
the chosen designer will get a Namaste Book Club shirt with their design, and a $30 gift certificate to Powell’s Books .

Meditate on This!

Congrats to @yosoykia @bikerunyoga and @bobweisenberg for winning the contests!

Namaste Book Club and our #yogadork friend @gomelissago are holding a Twitter Meditation Month.

We love how yoga has gained acceptance because of its health benefits and know many of our members enjoy the physicality of their practices. But sometimes we all need to remember that part of yoga is spending time looking inward as well. With that in mind, we are encouraging our members to engage in one month of a daily meditation practice. We ask you to tweet the hashtag phrase #ncbmm once daily along with a tweet about your meditation. Everyone can follow the other participants by searching for #ncbmm, which will encourage us all to meditate as well. We plan to collect the names of tweeters who do this for a month and throw them into a yoga mat bag for some prizes.

Winners: Everyone who participates will win by including meditation in their daily lives. We will all take a moment to slow down and look inward.

Yet, two lucky and randomly chosen tweeps will win either (random as well)

The contest will run officially from Sept. 10 – Oct. 10 although we hope to make it a perpetual trending topic and practice for all our members. Look inward, take time and meditate on this idea. Thanks to the lovely and fantastic Melissa for getting the meditation timer started for all of us!
