    Hi Noel,

    Thank you for being a regular reader of this blog and am glad you have enjoyed the content.

    You clicked a link in the blog carnival above which took you to an article written by another blogger on a different blog. The article was not written by me, or part of my blog :-). Sorry though you ended up clicking on a link on my blog which took you to an article not too much to your liking.

    This carnival is a collection of articles on yoga, meditation, spiritual growth etc, submitted by various authors from around the blog sphere. I review many of them, but not all in detail.

    Hope this clears things up a bit.

    All Good Wishes,

    I have been reading your blog for a while and most of the links so far I clicked have been good enough to read but today I must say that your last link about “facial Yoga” is very lame. Just someone gets up and calls it Yoga and shows up on google search doesn’t mean its indeed Yoga. If you look in the old scripts, there is no mention on Facial Yoga as such. Please don’t turn your blog to please western population who have materialistic attitude towards Yoga.
