Lesson 211 - The new Web Site is up and running!
Date: Thu Jun 24, 2004 0:50pm
Way back in lesson #82, it was mentioned that a web site would be
set up to provide a secure online backup for the AdvancedYogaPractices lessons. It has
been done, and you can find the web site at:
(now superceded by www.aypsite.com with the Geocities version
reverting to backup status -- discontinued in 2009)
This is the primary address, and is the one that is currently recommended for bookmarking.
(It is repeated at the end of this lesson, just in case the Yahoo group advertising is
The domain name, http://www.advancedyogapractices.com
, has been reserved for some time, and has been set up to forward automatically to the
current primary address. The second address is not the best one to bookmark as primary,
just in case the forwarding fails, or if the domain name does not get renewed somewhere
down the line. Of course, things change. If we move to an ad-free site at some point, then
the second address could become the primary one. It may be best to bookmark both
addresses, just in case.
All of the main group and tantra group lessons have been copied to the web site. So have
the yoga links. If anyone finds anything missing or not working, please let me know. The
numbering of lessons has been retained, so all of the numbered cross-referencing in the
lessons remains intact. As you know, some lesson numbers in the Yahoo group are not used
due to editing. You will see this reflected in the lesson directories on the web site. So,
the two sets of lessons are consistent in their numbering.
Navigation is good on the web site with all the lessons listed and linked on just two
directory pages (main and tantra). Navigation will become even better over the coming
weeks and months with the addition of a link-driven alphabetical topic index, and links
for all the cross-referencing in the lessons.
There will be some editing in the lessons on the web site to correct minor typographical
errors that could not be corrected in the Yahoo group. It is not expected that the lessons
will be rewritten on the web site though, so content in the two sets of lessons will
remain the same.
Beyond these practical matters, and a few other things related to the lessons, publication
of extensive additional spiritual writings on the web site is being contemplated. These
writings exist already, and maybe it would be beneficial if they were copied from the
local hard drive to the great hard drive of the internet. This could serve as an open
pre-hard copy book review for several spiritual writing projects that are in the works
here. More on that later.
It is expected that the Yahoo group will continue to play an important role. For the
foreseeable future, new lessons and yoga links will continue to be posted to the group
first, and copied to the web site within a day or two. This will keep the group emailings
current with the newest posted lessons.
With AdvancedYogaPractices now in two places on the internet, we have added a measure of
security. Hopefully this will provide longevity for the lessons, so they will continue to
be openly available online in the years to come for independent yoga practitioners
The guru is in you.
