We’ve, ahem, “covered” many Yoga Journal covers—whenever one of our favorite yoga teachers appears, like Amy, Kia, Faith, we feel equal parts happy and proud.

Now, our elephriend and occasional columnist Tiffany Cruikshank is on the cover. We’re waiting for our friends over at YJ to get us a bigger image, but here’s a preview.

Check out Tiffany Cruikshank on the cover of the new Yoga Journal December 2012 issue, coming to a magazine stand near you! Hope it inspires you:

Update to come: bigger image.

Here it is, thanks to YJ. Photo credit: David Roth.

Tiffany is that rare yoga teacher who, in my experience, is both fun and stylish and an enthusiastic, skilled teacher of yoga—and is grounded, fun, sweet, caring, tough. She’s got integrity, and is worth checking out: here’s her FB Page (worth checking for programs, and amazing photos, and inspiration). Here’s her site.

Congrats, Tiffany, and good choice, Yoga Journal (though we wish we could see a little more of her face)!

    If they thought they would intimidate or awe a newbie beginner by showing that pose, most people don't have to know anything about the physics or kinetics of this pose to intuit that it's dynamic-looking enough to probably be held for a split-second (i.e., something a dancer would do) … so it is acceptable by both badass yogi and newbie alike …(or by hardcore and clueless) thus, broadbrush appeal …

    Sorry, my cynicism is showing yet again …

    Great comment, Vision person!

    Nothing wrong with a pose that works well for folks like me, and folks like her.

    But not for most people. I'M not afraid of that pose. Do it at me all you like!

    Try holding it for 5 or so minutes without moving, and see how impressive it looks THEN …not for the photo op of 1000 speed film …

    Yoga for a different reason will attract different people. And I can tell that this magazine will try anything.

    Throw it against the wall, and see if it sticks …

    Otherwise, it's commercial claptrap that the general public is beginning to be desensitized to ….

    And just FYI, another of your featured writers and elephriend wrote the home practice article inside the mag. 😉
