Namaste, Bring Yoga West Sponsors!

In one week I fly to India, to commence yoga training in Rishikesh. My course runs July 15 through August 12.

Follow along, make comments, and ask questions at:


* Bonus factoid:

At only 30.1 degrees North, the average high temperature in Rishikesh mid-July is 91◦ F (the current humidity is 94%! Uh-oh . . . ):

Again, thanks for your help in bringing yoga west.

Hello Erik! Thank you! What…
Hello Erik!

Thank you! What a pleasant surprise. I'm sending you a more personal e-mail via my Hotmail account, but immediately below I've 'pasted' a generic 'thank you' note for all donors. You'll find links to my blog and Twitter account, for example.

All the best, friend! Sam Root in Glasgow


Dear Duke of Erikburgh,

With all the worthy causes out there, thanks for joining the group to Bring Yoga West!

I invite you to follow my Twitter account and participate on my transformative learning blog (e.g., read along, ask questions, leave comments) from July 15 through August 12.

On my blog you’ll find details on my yoga school’s program, daily schedule, and syllabus. I’ve also uploaded my Doctoral Qualifying Paper, as promised. In it I define culture shock and Hatha Yoga, and I critique five empirical studies whose results can be used to suggest yoga's efficacy on anger associated with strained acculturation in individuals who travel overseas for prolonged work assignments (‘expats’). I hope it is of some interest.

Also, please feel free to surf around and comment on the larger—still nascent—host blog site, 55 Degrees North: An Expat Blog (hey, what isn’t a work in progress?).

Last, 1 week before flying to India, via e-mail I’ll re-invite you and other sponsors to follow along.

Thanks again, Erik!

Best Wishes from Glasgow,

Samuel Root
