I’ve been working quite a bit on Tina and I’s Yoga site lately, changing the wordpress theme and organizing things around it.While I was adding yoga related videos to the site, I came across 2 impressive videos that literally made my jaw drop! Check it out for yourself. Even if you’re not into yoga, you have to admit what these guys are doing is amazing.

Also, don’t forget to check out YogaZee.com, and maybe add a link to it. The site is brand new and needs some SEO love. We’re still trying to figure out how to organize the site so things might look a little funky every once in a while. Namaste!

Google: creeping into your life one step at a time

Google unveiled Google Health, a long-anticipated health information service that combines the leading Web company’s classic search services with a user’s online personal health records.

The password-protected service provides a personalized profile for Google users of their basic medical history and gathers relevant information associated with the user’s health conditions.

The Story Of Stuff

The Story Of StuffsMy friend Kriss forwarded me a link to a video showing the story of stuff. I’m usually very cautious at watching what Kriss sends me because she’s a hippie and her ideal of “saving the planet” is just too much for me sometimes.

But I clicked and watched the full 20 minute video, which, I have to admit, was really good.
