Moving and Yoga...

What a week! We moved into our new apartment on Friday and are in the process of unpacking and wondering why on earth we have two sets of differently shaped ramekins.

Then last week I took two workshops with the amazing Shiva Rea. The yoga style is so up my alley - devotional, ecstatic and completely organic. Incredible!

Finally, during this weekend's teacher training we had an inversion and arm balance workshop with Simon Park, who is a great teacher and really cute (not that I noticed - I was only focused on my own practice, of course). It was amazing how being upside-down brought up hidden emotional issues around moving - funny how that yoga stuff has a direct impact on the internal world. Go figure!

More to come!

Oh my godds! Are you now dangling your legs behind your head on public beaches? What does Juno have to say about this turn o events.

By the way, guess who joined Ganesha and I at yoga last Wednesday? Kwan Yin and Hera! Amazing! They say that both Cybele and Juno will be joining us for this week's session.

Yoga practice seems to be spreading through the Halls of Mystery.

Hey Greg, I've always heard Yoga is a very uplifting and cleansing exercise. I'm afraid I'd hurt myself if I tried some of the moves!

I love yoga!
So you are going to teach? Wish you were in my area..I couldn't find a good teacher here. So it's just me and Rodney Yee here at home.
