Here’s an update on teaching myself the basics of yoga using my Personal Learning Network (PLN). I’ve started building my very own personal learning network . Currently it is an area I’ve set aside on Evernote, a tool for tracking bits of information you don’t want to lose. My note contains links to resources to help me get started with yoga and links to resources on other topics that are of interest to me.
Reading about PLNs on Pinterest has led me to sign up for Pinterest. I am now following 6 Pinterest boards. Through Eric Sheninger I have access to links of resources and tools that will help to improve my teaching. I had heard from colleagues that Pinterest was a neat a tool to use for learning about different things. After visiting the Pinterest site, I see why they are excited.
Through Google, I have found many yoga forums and yoga blogs. Some of which I have documented within Evernote. I am specifically searching for blogs and forums that are useful for yoga novices and that are free. The forums and blogs will help in answering my questions about yoga basics, including the history of yoga, and learning some of the vocabulary that is specific to yoga.
